Sweet n Sour Stir Fry

I almost feel guilty every time I fix stir 
fry for supper. My husband does not like rice.
Therefore, he is not a big fan of stir fry.

I thoroughly enjoy rice and stir fry's
so I make it every once in awhile.

This is a favorite of mine:
Pan fried chicken, green beans,
and water chestnuts smothered
in a homemade sweet n sour sauce
served on a bed of rice.

Fry your chicken pieces in butter and garlic.

Simmer until green beans are soft.

Ready for me to enjoy.
