Friday Food: Caribbean Chicken Stir Fry

Add a little spice to your life with recipe and get some tropical fruit in there at the same time (get it fresh and not in the can for more health ;-)  ).  Stir fry is a great option for a healthy meal that offers you a lot of food and this is just an option to change it up and spice it up at the same time.

Enjoy it.
