Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry From Thai Kitchen
1 lb. chicken tenders, cut into thin strips

2 TBS vegetable oil
4 tsp. cornstarch

1 c. water
2 TBS Simply Asia Sweet Ginger and Garlic Seasoning

Mix water, soy sauce, cornstarch and seasoning in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside. Heat one TBS oil in large nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Add vegetables. Stir fry for 3 minutes. Remove from skillet. Heat remaining one TBS oil in skillet. Add chicken. Stir fry 5 minutes or until cooked through. Return veggies to skillet. Stir sauce mixture. Add to skillet. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil on medium heat. Boil 1 minute until sauce is slightly thickened. Serve over rice if desired.
