Chicken and Shrimp Chow Mein Stir-Fry Recipe

Chicken and Shrimp Chow Mein Stir-Fry Recipe
I recently discovered Chow Mein Stir-Fry vegetables in the vegetable section of the frozen foods. It occurred to me that by adding a sauce and some kind of protein, I could have a quick Chinese-style meal in about 15 minutes. The sauce goes together quickly in the magicBullet, but if you have a stir-fry sauce you especially like, you can use it instead to save even more time. This 15-Minute Chicken and Shrimp Chow Mein Stir-Fry has a delicious sauce, and because the frozen vegetables contain chow mein noodles, it’s a one dish meal.
Flav-r-Pac, the brand I found in my area for this vegetable and noodle stir-fry also makes one with rice, which can be substituted for the chow mein variety. This dish is great for a weeknight or when you’re in a hurry. It’s tasty, too, and the vegetables are crisp tender and flavorful. If you have some fresh vegetables in the fridge, you can throw a few in to add color and crunch.
