Chicken with Broccoli

This is a really light, healthy and easy one-dish wonder. This recipe is based on Martin Yan’s Beef broccoli recipe. It’s a great quick meal for a weeknight and impressive enough to serve to a crowd too. You can use any veggies for this recipe such as asparagus, green beans etc.
