Easy Honey-Garlic Chicken

I just love it when I find a quick and easy recipe that makes a delicious dinner.  This is one of those.  This comes from

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (sliced)
3 cups frozen stir-fry vegetables
1/2 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
2 Tbsp honey
4 cloves garlic (minced)
3/4 tsp ground ginger
3 cups hot cooked rice

Cook chicken in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add vegetables, dressing, honey, garlic and ginger.

Cook and stir an additional 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are heated through.

Serve with rice.

Okay - this recipe gave me a good start, but I like to jazz it up a little bit.  For starters, I slice up fresh veggies to stir fry instead of using frozen.  I like a combination of broccoli, carrots, onion, and snow peas.  The carrots need to cook a little bit longer than the five minutes noted to soften them, but not too much longer.  Add the onion and snow peas last.  They don't take long to cook at all.

I use my Pampered Chef Rice Cooker to cook the rice.  Perfect rice guaranteed every time.  Place 4 cups of water, 2 cups of rice, and 1 tsp salt in the rice cooker.  Place it in the microwave and cook on high for 5 minutes.  Cook at 50% power for 15 more minutes.  Let stand for five minutes before serving.
