Did You Know...
Marinating--even for as little as 15 minutes--adds flavor and makes for juicier chicken. The acid in the marinade helps break down chicken's tough muscle fibers.
Success
Make sure not to overcrowd your skillet; adding too many stir-fry ingredients at once brings down the temperature. If you have too many ingredients for your pan, cook ingredients in batches.
