I am always looking for quick dinner ideas for those nights where dinner needs to be cooked, served and eaten within an hour. 

Stir fry’s are my go to meal when we are in a rush. You get a great serving of vegetables, a protein, and a tasty sauce. Sometimes I like to throw in some noodles as well, but this quick and easy mandarin chicken stir fry is amazing just on its own.

You could totally sub out the chicken and use tofu instead (or beef) but I loved the combination of orange and chicken together. The fresh snow peas added a great touch as well.
