Chicken Broccoli Stir-Fry

Disclaimer: Just because this post is, in my opinion, lacking, doesn't mean the dish is. Seriously, this is one of our favs. Give it a try!

Earlier this year I found a very good recipe in my Kraft Food and Family magazine. Speaking of which, I just (and just as in while writing this post, not you reading it) noticed you now have to subscribe and pay for this once free magazine. Looks like I won't be receiving this anymore. Bummer.

C loves this this Chicken Broccoli Stir-Fry, as does the rest of my family. It is a go to meal when there's nothing else around. It's super simple and super delicious.

Chicken Broccoli Stir-Fry

Here's what you need
1/2 lb. angel hair pasta
2 c. broccoli florets
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips or cubes
1/2 c. Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing (I've found Kraft and Ken's makes this)
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. each: garlic salt, ginger, crushed red pepper flakes

Here's what you do:

Cook pasta as directed. Add the broccoli to the pasta/water for the last 3 minutes.

In a skillet cook cut up chicken. Once cooked add dressing, soy sauce, and spices.

Drain pasta and combine with chicken and sauce mixture (I do this in the skillet to make sure the pasta soaks up all the good juices).

Check out the yummy leftovers.

 I forgot, until putting the leftovers away, that I needed to take a picture of the end product. Since I didn't take pictures along the way (because I was simultaneously making a not-so-good apple crisp - not sure what went wrong) I felt taking a picture of the almost cold leftovers was necessary. I don't know how these bloggers do it. They must have a photography fairy who photographs their every move while making a dish they plan on blogging about.

This sounds/looks good! I might have to give it a try. Too bad I don't live closer; then, I could just try your leftovers.
