One Pan Peanut Chicken & Broccoli

One Pan Peanut Chicken + Broccoli

Anne Murray, MS, RD
This might surprise you, but I’m definitely not a perfectionist when it comes to cooking. In fact, I hardly ever measure, I have trouble following a recipe to the T and I always and putting a creative spin on a familiar dish 🥦 I want people to know that meal prepping and cooking doesn’t have to be perfect. Doesn’t have to be difficult and it can taste amazing! This taste like takeout, but it’s even better - it’s filled with balance from carbohydrate, protein, fiber & healthy fat 🥥
