FITori fave recipe | Ginger Chili Chicken Stir Fry

This recipe is FULL OF FLAVOR!  I’m actually making it AGAIN this week (made it last week).  We doubled the chicken and sauce and it only lasted 2 dinners and 1 lunch for the hubby. So, it went FAST!  I think I’ll triple it…all of it…including the veggies next time b/c we were fighting over the veggies!

Check out this post and the comments section for tips on handling chili peppers!  And check out the recipe below….
