Broccoli & Chicken Stir Fry

     If you need a quick, tasty dinner; this is your meal. This stir fry can be cooked up in 15 minutes or less.  The best part is that it tastes great and is loaded with veggies. You can eat as much as you want!
     We make this a lot at our house. It kind of tricks us into thinking we are having take-out. It's healthier and less expensive than take-out so that's a winning combination in my book. The stir fry has red pepper flakes to give it a little kick, tons of veggies, and almonds for a little healthy fat/protein. If you prefer other vegetables, you could definitely substitute with what you like. A couple others we like are asparagus or snow peas.You could also take the time to chop up your carrots and stuff, but I'm lazy and didn't bother. We also went the lazy way with the brown rice, and bought Trader Joe's frozen brown rice. It cooks in the microwave in three minutes, and it's pretty tasty. This is a perfect solution, since rice takes forever to cook.
