Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry with Asian Tahini Sauce


Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry with Asian Tahini Sauce

Stir Frys are great because not only can they be made in one pan for easy clean up but it’s a great way to use up the vegetables that  have been sitting in your fridge.  To make this even quicker and easier, you could use a variety of your favorite frozen vegetables. 

Also, if you’re someone who likes their stir fry served over rice, cook up a batch of cauliflower rice for the perfect compliment!
