They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • When selecting sausages, try to pick sausages with natural ingredients and no added preservatives or fillers.
  • When selecting the bell peppers, try to pick peppers with vibrant colors, as they will add flavor and color to the dish.

  • Substitute the chicken breasts with chicken thighs for a juicier and richer flavor. The benefit of this substitution is that the chicken thighs will be more flavorful and succulent, making for a tastier stir-fry.
  • Substitute the VH teriyaki stir-fry sauce with a homemade teriyaki sauce for a fresher and healthier option. The benefit of this substitution is that the homemade sauce will be free of preservatives and additives, making for a healthier dish.

Vegetarian Version Replace the chicken and sausage with 1/2 cup of cooked lentils, 1/2 cup of cooked chickpeas, and 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa. Omit the stir-fry sauce and replace with 1/4 cup of soy sauce. Increase the amount of vegetables used and add 1/2 cup of cooked edamame.
