Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

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.

Frozen broccoli can be substituted for the fresh.

Look for packages of pre-cut chicken for stir-fry in the meat department.
