Chicken Stir Fry

Makes 6 servings

1 package rice stick noodles
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp. vinegar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. dry ginger
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
1 onion, julienned
2 carrots, julienned
3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 tbsp. grated orange zest
2 large bell peppers, seeded and julienned
3 large green onions, chopped

1. Cover rice noodles in warm water and soak for a half hour.
2. Meanwhile, bring soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger and garlic to a boil in a small sauce pan. Boil for 4 minutes and remove from heat. Set aside.
