EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Chicken is a great substitute for the shrimp in this recipe. Use 1/2 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces.

Try basmati or jasmine rice with this stir-fry. Start the rice before you start cooking the peppers, preparing as directed on the package.
