Chicken and vegetables stir fry
I would’ve liked this dish with more broccoli, but that’s all I had left.
I love ingredients that make weeknight cooking more quick and convenient. Pre-cut, pre-rinsed broccoli florets, pre-frozen, portions of chicken, and pre-chopped garlic are so convenient.
As far as garlic goes, I personally prefer the flavor and aroma of fresh garlic and I like a lot of it. It's not hard to prepare it, but sometimes I would just rather take the shortcut of pre-chopped, preserved garlic to save some time. I get it in bulk because it's just cheaper if you use a lot of garlic. The brand of garlic I used in this recipe was Kirkland Signature, the one from Costco.
My measurements are approximate. I usually "eyeball" it and taste if it needs more of anything.
