Easy Lunch: Simple Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

This week, our grocery store was having a sale for bone-in chicken, buy one get one free. Whereas I normally buy whole chickens, it was cheaper this week to buy chicken breast and take advantage of the sale. Once I got it home, it was easy to remove the meat from the bone and skin, then I had endless recipes.

For a quick lunch, I made a simple chicken and broccoli stir fry.

About 1 lb chicken breast cubed into even pieces
1 or 2 stalks of fresh broccoli
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
dash of curry powder

In a wok or non stick pan, heat the olive oil under medium heat. Add the chicken, stirring almost constantly. Cook the chicken for about 10 minutes or until you can't see any pink on any of the chicken. Add the broccoli, salt, pepper, and curry poweder to the pan and continue to stir it while it cooks. Cook for about 5-10 minutes longer or until the chicken is cooked through and starting to brown a bit, and the broccoli is  a bright green.
