Easy Chicken Stir-fry

This is one of those quick and easy weeknight dinners that you can quickly pull together with whatever extra vegetables you happen to have laying in your veggie drawer.

This recipe makes enough for 2 people, so it can be easily doubled or tripled if need be.  I had looked around online for a quick and easy recipe to use up my veggies, and this is what I ended up throwing together. :)

I served this with brown rice, but it would be delicious over chow mein noodles or steamed rice too!
