"I would always order it in the Chinese restaurants it's called the 'Happy Family'. It is a delicious chicken and vegetable stir-fry. Now I do this at home using my indoor grill."

  1. Preheat an indoor grill, and coat with cooking spray. Place the chicken strips on the grill, and cook for about 7 minutes. Allow them to cool slightly, then cut into cubes.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the onion rings in the skillet, and cook for a few minutes. Add the red and yellow pepper, baby corn, and the stir-fry vegetables. Increase the heat to medium-high; cook and stir for about 15 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle in the sugar and salt. Stir in the chicken. Dissolve the cornstarch in water, and pour into the skillet along with the soy sauce. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens.

This was OK, but a little bland. I thought it was a little heavy on the vegetables. I'd add EITHER fresh or frozen, as it made quite a large amount.

This meal did not taste to us as typical chinese, but we enjoyed it. We did not add any baby corn and peppers because we used stir-fry deluxe, which has peppers and baby corn already in. Yummy a...

Good start, but lacked flavor. Maybe garlic? I'll try that next time along with fresh veggies, as the bag had lots of broccoli stems and carrots and little else.

As written, I thought this dish lacked flavor. Like Kez, I marinated my chicken and needed to add a lot more spices. I also used some garlic chili paste and a bit of oyster sauce. My Quality Coo...

This was a great dish, one of the best Chinese meals I have made...easy to make. I was worried when it called for sugar, but it worked. I put mine over rice. It will become a favorite recipe

Every "happy family" i've seen at chinese places has chicken, beef, pork, and some type of seafood...a happy family of different ingredients.
