Chicken vegetable stir-fry

Give me a bag of vegetables and a wok and let the magic happen. Slicing and dicing vegetables always calms me down and nothing is better than a dish filled with healthy and fresh vegetables. Unfortunately the last few days it’s been hard to find fresh vegetables at the market because the weather conditions made it hard for people to grow them, so there aren’t as many available to buy. And let me tell you it’s been hard for me too. There are always vegetables I can buy at the store, but you never know if they’re fresh or not. Due to lack of vegetables at the market I had to settle for the store, and pick out the ones I could find. It’s been like this for days, so it’s been a surprise when I got home today and found bags of fresh vegetables. Not picking some of them, I chose to cook with all of them and so I prepared chicken vegetable stir-fry.

Here’s the recipe and I hope you’ll like it!
