The secret to this Cilantro Chicken Stir-Fry is obviously the CILANTRO! I am a HUGE fan of cilantro and throw it into recipes every chance I get. I think it adds just the right zing to this fun dish. To make things even easier, this time I used Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Herbs in the recipe, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. Have you tried this stuff?! YOU GUYS. The beauty of the lightly dried herbs is that they absolutely come to life and rehydrate during cooking; providing a convenient and simple way to freshen up your favorite dinners. You get the same aromas, texture, and flavor of fresh herbs with none of the fuss. (PLUS, they stay fresh in the fridge for up to FOUR WEEKS! Way longer than fresh herbs) They come in tons of varieties like Basil, Chili Pepper, Ginger, Parsley and Chives, but I knew Cilantro would be my go-to. I picked mine up at Kroger (the best!) and I think I have found my new ingredient obsession. There’s a little giveaway at the end of this post so DO NOT MISS IT! You have just got to try Gourmet Garden!
