Stir-Fried Honey-Ginger Chicken

Short post because this was really easy, really good and I didn't screw it up at all. ha! 
We all loved it! And leftovers were great the next day.

Anything goes. Used Martha Stewart's recipe as a guideline and added whatever was in the frig. Broccoli, snow peas, bell peppers. Threw in some roasted cashews, and called it a great dinner! I cheated and got some frozen egg rolls and some potstickers from Trader Joe's. They are excellent if you have a Trader Joe's in your area!
