A true clean-out-your-kitchen type meal. Use leftover chicken or turkey if you wish for this stir-fry that also includes roasted green beans, cabbage, carrots, and everyone's favorite: BACON.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away? I can't. It feels like just yesterday 2018 was starting.
