Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry-By Newlywed Moments

Can I just say how I'm so not ready for this week to start. Especially after such a great few days. I had my best friend from NC come out to visit me. D's family came for the weekend and we had our Christmas together. It was so nice to be able to relax and I saw Les Miserables for the 2nd time, just as good if not better than the first time I saw it! Had to take a short break from my blog life, but will be back up and running starting now. I love meeting new bloggers and I'm so excited that I have met Emily from Newlywed Moments. Here today to share what looks like a fabulous recipe! She is just so sweet and I love her blog! Go check her out! And try this recipe because I will be!

Newlywed Moments
Hi everyone! My name is Emily and I blog over at Newlywed Moments about everything from romance to recipes to real life. I want to begin by saying thank you so much to Jessica for letting me guest post here today! What a privilege it is to be here and get to know you lovely readers!

Some random facts about me: In June of this year, I got married to Hudson – my best friend and high school sweetheart. I love Jesus. I hate coffee but I’m still addicted to Starbucks. I’m from the northeast but secretly wish I lived in the south.  Oh, and I absolutely LOVE making blog friends…so make sure you come “visit” my blog

But enough about, I am sharing with you a recipe for chicken and broccoli stir fry! First, let me explain how this recipe came about. Our kitchen was looking pretty bare and literally the ONLY things we had were chicken and broccoli. Isn't that how it always is?!

I looked through recipe after recipe, and it literally seemed like each one had an ingredient I didn't have.

So after searching "chicken and broccoli recipes" and "what to put in a recipe if you don't have (fill in the blank)" galore, I came up with THIS. And yes, my friends, it turned out delicious!

Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry

Prep Time: 15 mins / Bake Time: 15 mins / Total Time: 30 mins
