Peanut-Broccoli Stir-Fry Dinner

I have been wanting to try this stir-fry meal from Southern Living's one-dish dinners and when trying to figure out what to prepare for dinner last night I remembered this dish.

I won't say it was the easiest, fastest meal to prepare, but it also wasn't the hardest. What was the most difficult was having to manage multiple things at one time. For example, the brown rice was cooking while the chicken was cooking and then I needed to wash and cut the vegetables and make the sauce. It's just a lot going on all at once, but it came together nicely.

The recipe calls for vegetable broth and this proved to be troublesome because Kroger does not carry vegetable broth (or if they do it was hidden). Luckily there is a Fresh Market close by that carries it. The recipe only calls for broccoli and carrots, but snow peas are delicious so we added those. With stir-fry, you can pretty much add any vegetables you like, the more the better. The recipe also used tofu, but we like chicken, so that is what we used.
