One thing we all seem to have on hand is chicken. Here’s a different stir fry recipe that uses seasonal broccoli. Even though we’re still sheltering in place, it’s nice to have something really different and yummy for dinner. This recipe fills the bill!
This is also good with fresh snow or sugar snap peas, cut in half on the diagonal.
