Good Fortune Chicken Stir Fry

It finally happened.  I got the infamous fortune-less fortune cookie.


Not the best way to start out the year.

Well, I say forget about the fortune and let's focus on our healthy FUTURE!

Let's start bringing back family time around the table. 

And cooking with fresher ingredients. 

And get over the misconception that healthy equals bland (no yawning here)

And that you THINK that you just don't have the time to cook (ok, now I'm yawning).

And, since you'll probably ask me to prove it... I will.

Here's my Good Fortune Chicken Stir Fry. 
(wow, that was a lot of ands)

You're going to love it.

Good Fortune Chicken Stir Fry

4 tablespoons olive oil
2 c. broccoli crowns
1 c. carrots, peeled and cut into coins
1 package skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup rice
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet and add in broccoli and carrots. Stir fry until crisp-tender. Remove from pan and set aside. Then add the chicken to the pan (add the rest of the oil as needed). Stir fry until white, then add in the soy sauce and sugar. Cook until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken w/slotted spoon to plate w/veggies and set aside. Back into the pan add in the chicken broth and rice. Bring to boil and then turn down to the lowest setting.  Cover and simmer for 20 min. When the rice is cooked, add back in chicken and veggies and heat through.
