Expert Tips

  • Chicken strips for stir-frying conveniently save prep and cleanup time. Look for packages of chicken strips in the grocery store's poultry section.
  • Substitute 2 cups of thawed frozen cut green beans for the lima beans.
  • For spicier flavor, add more hot pepper sauce to the sauce.
  • Fresh basil brightens recipes simply and quickly; omit the dry basil and stir in 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil just before serving.
