More About This Recipe

  • This tasty stir-fry dinner tosses together quickly and easily. When you think cranberry, you probably think cranberry sauce. Because let’s be honest, this time a year a majority of the cranberry sauce you’ll eat will be next to a slice of turkey and a pool of gravy! But what if I told you there's another kind of cranberry sauce out there? This sauce is an entirely different beast, intended for stir-fries instead of turkey sides. Before we get to the sauce, let’s talk stir-fry. This recipe can be pretty flexible, but I like to use nice and mild chicken for the protein. Slice it thinly and stir it together with some soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger. For the veggies, I just used a bag of Cascadian Farm frozen stir-fry blend. One bag is the perfect amount for two big servings of stir-fry. You’ll want to gently thaw these before adding them to the wok later. While rice is a standard carb for stir-fry, I decided to change it up a bit with these thin egg noodles. You should be able to find them in the Asian section of most grocery stores. They are really easy to rehydrate (boil them for a few minutes) and then toss them with some sesame oil so they don’t stick together. Serve this stuff over the noodles with some cilantro and maybe another squirt of sriracha!
