Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry 1

This weeks dinner was all about revamping some of my favorite Chinese take out meals and making them more healthier with no deep frying opting for stir-frying instead. My Garlic Chicken stir-fry is all white meat and a bit spicy with snow peas, bamboo shoots and baby bella mushrooms. How this recipe came to me, I was trying to replicate the garlic chicken I had at Fortune Cookie in Fountain Valley, its has become me and my baby’s favorite Chinese restaurants because its all about healthy Chinese food, all organic meats and vegetables, all white meat, their Orange Chicken is so good and well everything in the menu is good lol, though I haven’t had everything in the menu yet but I am always trying to get something new when I go  eat at Fortune Cookie anyways their garlic chicken was simply one of the best garlic chicken I’ve had and this is my version of trying to remake my garlic chicken experience and I must say I came pretty close, my baby even said so.
