What is "Heallthified"?
We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
Success
If you choose to cook regular brown rice, be sure to start it before you begin stir-frying—it will take about 45 minutes to cook. The instant type takes only about 10 minutes.
Substitution
Frozen broccoli can be substituted for the fresh.
Time-Saver
Look for packages of pre-cut chicken for stir-fry in the meat department.
