Stir-Fried Chicken and Vegetables

I know lots of people do not need a recipe for stir-fry, but I like to have something to go by. The flavor is always awesome with this recipe. I hardly ever do all the vegetables exactly like it says, I just use what I have. It can not be messed up. -Kristin

2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. ginger, minced
