Garlic Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

Stir Fry’s are my BFF.  Especially on crazy busy weeknights when I want a healthy meal on the table but also desperately need it to be quick & easy.  This Garlic Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry is just that.  It’s so yummy and a meal the entire family will love!

Garlic Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

I’m sure you all are tired of me talking about this, but our house construction officially started yesterday!  Alessandro can no longer continue on his demo rampage– sorry, babe it’s time to let the pros in.  I’ll try to keep you all posted with the progress along the way in case you’re interested!  It’s been so much fun so far, but i’m about to be forced into making 1,876,345 decisions which is stressing me the F out.  But… I got this!  I so got this.

Garlic Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

Anywho, stir fry’s are one of my favorite go-to’s for busy weeknights.  The most time consuming part is just getting everything prepped and ready to go.  I like to cut up my meat and veggies first, then prepare my sauce.  Once everything is ready in bowls, then I preheat my wok (or non stick skillet).  It goes very quickly so it’s definitely smart to be ready to WOK n’ ROLL.. if you know what I mean?
