Recently, I was chatting with a friend of mine and we were talking about the recent "makeover" that Cooking Light did with their layout. She is not a fan, while I like how easy it is to read. However, she mentioned that she was looking through her older copies of Cooking Light and noticed that the calories and fat were much lower over 8 years ago than they are now. I decided it was time to go back and revisit some of the stacks of recipes I've had bookmarked.
I pulled a recipe for Stir-Fried Pork with Broccoli and Cashews (recipe can be found HERE), and ended up adapting it to what I had on hand for dinner. I kept the broccoli and all of the seasonings, but used chicken and omitted the cashews (since I didn't have any in the cabinet).

This was so easy to throw together on a weeknight. One thing I would have liked was if the sauce was thicker, as it had no body to it at all. My Youngest who is the hardest to please in my house loved the chicken and the broccoli! Score! I also liked the overall flavor, but would add a bit of cornstarch next time to thicken it up a bit. My Husband didn't care for the ginger, he felt it was too much. I also think that this recipe lends itself well to using whatever you have on hand, mushrooms would be a perfect addition.
