Saucy Chicken Broccoli Stir-fry

Deliciously saucy tender juicy Chicken and Broccoli brought together in an effortless stir-fry. The authentic savory flavor of this meal will bring quality to your table. You will not have a difficult time getting the children to eat their broccoli after they take the first bite. I honestly have an extremely picky kid that turns his nose up at most vegetables, yet he cleans his plate every time I serve this dish.

Serve with your favorite rice and you will have yourself a comforting well balanced dining experience. No preservative makes this a healthier choice than eating out.
