Notes

This is what clears out all the frozen chicken breast from my freezer in a tasty and convenient way. I love this recipe because it's just a little bit of chopping and a quick wok-fry. You'll be done before the rice is.

This dish is great vegetarian too - firm tofu instead of chicken!

A dash of local for every season
