Stir Fry

Here is a recipe I found on one of my favorite cooking sites... The Pioneer Woman Cooks. You can see the recipe here. It isn't difficult to make, but there is a lot of ingredients, so don't let that scare you. It is delicious!

Peanut Oil (I actually used olive oil because I didn't have Peanut oil)
3 Chicken Breasts, cut into cubes
drizzle of sesame oil
1 medium onion
2 gloves of garlic
2-3 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced (my supermarket was out of fresh ginger, so I used ground)
1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
10 white mushrooms, sliced
1 small jar baby corn, cut into pieces
1/3 - 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 Tbls. Sugar
2 rounded teaspoons arrowroot (I don't have this, but I did add a little bit of cornstarch)
Rice Vinegar (i used white vinegar)

1. After cutting meat into chunks, drizzle with soy sauce and sesame oil. Set aside.
2. Prepare all vegetables and have them ready.

3. Mix 1/2 cup soy sauce with sugar. Stir together and set aside.
4. To begin stir fry, heat skillet or wok over high heat. When it is hot drizzle 2 Tbsp Oil.
