Being outside.... Ginger chicken stir fry

I love this time of year.  Especially with this weather.  We get outside more.  We walk more places.  We get to open the doors and the windows and feel the promise that summer is on the way.

And it makes me want to eat veggies. 

Which is strange, because I have never really liked them.

But I must be growing up (finally) because they sound good.

And I want to be that good example for my kids.

This is another easy meal that we had last night and really liked.

Ginger Chicken stir fry
2 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP chopped garlic
1/2 onion, thinly sliced

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp red pepper
1 head broccoli
2 carrots, thinly sliced

1/2 c chicken broth
1/4 tsp teryaki sauce

Soy sauce
Brown Rice

The easiest way to do this is start by chopping all your veggies and chicken.  It makes it easy to move from one step to the next.

In a large non stick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. 

Add the garlic and onions to the pan.

Add the chicken to the pan and cook until no longer pink.

Add the ginger to the chicken and stir it around.

Add the broccoli and carrots.  Cook until tender/crisp depending on how done you like it.

Add the chicken broth and teryaki until it bubbles.

Serve over brown rice with soy sauce.
