Start Stir-Frying Tonight (and Make This Chicken)

"If you're looking for the fastest way to create big flavors, then it's time to start stir-frying! Today, I'm making a Thai-inspired red-curry stir-fry with chicken, snow peas, and even some fresh pineapple (it adds just the right amount of sweetness). The true flavor creator in this recipe, however, is one secret ingredient: fish sauce. If you've never tried it before, you'll be shocked by how much depth it can create in almost no time. If you think you're not a fan of curry, try this recipe for dinner -- it might be just the thing to change your mind!"
