Simple Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry

So, does it mean you’re officially old when you eat dinner at 4:30?  Well wait.. let me clarify a little bit first.  We did not eat breakfast or lunch so I was starving.  Does that mean we’re not old?  Not that being old is necessarily a bad thing but it’s not something you want to consider when you still have an 11 year old at home.  Hmm things to ponder.  Anyway, I work from home and when lunch time came around I told my husband I was starving!  He asked what I wanted and I told him stir-fry.  You see he makes the most amazing stir-fry ever and I knew it was planned for dinner.  Of course he laughed and told me that was for dinner and asked again what I wanted for lunch.  I replied then I want dinner for lunch.  He’s so good to me!  He immediately went to the grocery and grabbed the missing ingredients for stir-fry, came home and made dinner so we could eat early.  You’re going to love this Simple Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry.  It is full of flavor, is ready in 30 minutes or less and packs a lot of heat.  We love spicy food but if you do not you can remove all or some of the jalapeno and Serrano peppers from the recipe.  They will not be missed as there is plenty of seasoning to still make this dish very flavorful!

*Note ~ We use a rice cooker similar to this one,   14 cup Rice Cooker , for our rice.  If you don’t have one you should definitely consider purchasing one!  The rice is always perfectly cooked and it makes it such an easy job.  I typically do not care for one purpose small appliances but this is one that I love!
