Quick and Easy Chinese Stir-Fry Recipe

Sharing is caring!

There comes a time in every busy mom’s life where she has to decide between takeout and frozen.  I know this feeling, I have 3 very active children.

Fortunately, I also have a large amount of super quick recipes in my arsenal!   This means I can give my kids a much more nutritious meal than either of the aforementioned options.  Not as good as it could be, but still much better than the others!

This Quick and Easy Chinese Stir-Fry Recipe is such a go-to for us that I get slightly panicked if I don’t have the three ingredients in my stash!

With only three ingredients in the entire recipe, the above list is mighty short! 🙂
