*FAVORITE* Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

This is fast, healthy and delicious, and it can be varied in endless ways. Serve over long grain brown rice or any other rice.

Replace the chicken with beef (round or chuck or any steak), pork (loin) or even egg (soft scramble first, remove from pan, then add at the end).  Add other vegetables if desired: bell peppers, squash, onions, etc.  Increase/decrease the amount of broccoli and chicken if desired… there is plenty of sauce to go around.  Very versatile recipe.  The sauce ingredients will work well with any stir fry.
