This recipe came from a magazine ad from 1985. I had never made a stir fry before, and my husband was surprised when he came home from work. He loved it!

Now he just asks for "that chicken", and I know what he wants.

The page is totally shredded, but I still use it to cook the meal. Old habit, I guess. lol
