A frat house kitchen can be a dark and mysterious place. Most guys aren’t really willing to step foot in the kitchen, let alone try to make themselves a meal. When the chef from my chapter has his off day, I often think to myself “what the heck am I supposed to eat around here?!?” and then proceed to eat something stale or just nasty.
Hope is not completely lost; chicken stir-fry is a great way to maximize the leftover ingredients in most frat house kitchens and make an epic meal.
