Stir Fry Chicken in Oyster Sauce

As you may or may not have noticed by now, I seem to be just a little obsessed with Chinese food. Part of the reason of course is that a Stir Fry is easy to make on a busy weeknight, and doesn’t take too much time either. The other part is that the husband and I love love LOVE Chinese food and could probably eat it every night of the week without complaint.

So here’s a quick recipe I threw together for a dinner party last night that is a favourite of my husband and I. Hope you guys like it as much as we do!
