Farm Veggie Chicken Stir-Fry

Stir fry is my go to for a healthy meal full of veggies and lean meat! This is a different version than the traditional broccoli and carrot stir fry. I really dug into my farm bag and went with the leafy greens route. Plus, so easy to control how much protein and veggies you’re getting, including how much sauce. You could even cook the sauce on the side and drizzle over when everything is done cooking. There are so many textures in this dish from the soft chicken to crunchy vegetables to the rice. Substitution options are any produce and vegetables in your farm bag, most would taste great. Swap the chicken for any lean protein or ground meat. Lastly, for the base swap the rice for Asian noodles.
