Everyone loves Asian take-out and this tasty stir-fry is no exception. With a bold-flavored, store-bought teriyaki sauce, this skillet dish is easy enough to make in your own home on most busy weeknights. Canned water chestnuts add a nice crunch and contrast nicely with the tender cooked vegetables. Serve over frozen or microwavable brown rice and you’ll have a full meal for four pulled together in around 30 minutes. If you can't find chicken tenders, just slice 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breast into 12 strips. Save time by purchasing two 12 oz bags of ready-to-eat fresh Asian vegetables.
