Rockin’ Stir Fry Veggies with Chicken

I love cooking with my Dad in the kitchen.  I learn so much.  Yes I have to bring a little extra patience.  He has patience with cooking.  I do not.  I am a throw it together and try it.  He is patient and methodical and makes some of the best food I have ever tasted.  We listened to some good music while making this stir fry so-Rockin Stir Fry sounds about right.  

My Dad’s secret ingredient is always love. He makes the best rice you have ever tasted!  He also believes in garlic bread with every meal 🙂
