Meal Swap - Stir Fry

Back in April I made a stir fry for my monthly meal swap. I decided to go ahead and write it up because I had some pictures and I thought it ended up pretty yummy!

I started with this recipe from all recipes and adjusted the ingredients to fit what I had on hand.

I chopped up carrots & onion and pulled broccoli florets & snap peas from the freezer. I think it was about 1/2 cup of the onion, 1 cup of carrots & peas and 2 cups of broccoli.

Then I diced up about 5 pounds of chicken and let it marinate in teriyaki sauce. I truly cannot remember if I made the sauce or if it was store-bought. Is that totally sad? My mind is full of current information and I can't remember back to April! Then I divided that meat up into 8 parts.

Finally, I divided a big brick of noodles into 8 parts. These noodles had been given to me by the kitchen coordinator at our church about 6 months previously so I wanted to use them up and get them out of the freezer!

Here's a photo of all the ingredients portioned up.

Then I got it all sorted into a big Ziploc and wrote out directions. Our printer is constantly on the fritz so I often write out cooking directions for the swap. I was particularly proud of this batch because it was finished before the swap was happening. Sometimes the girls even write out their own directions because I am frantically finishing things up as they arrive!

And here is how it looked cooked up. Yummo! I used more noodles for my own family's batch because there was a little leftover I just tossed in.
