My criteria for a recipe that goes into our meal rotation is that it must have a good source of protein, contain more than one vegetable, be easy to make in under 30 minutes, and preferably only need one pan to prepare from start to finish. It must also be a favorite meal for at least one family member and not be a complete battle to get the kids to eat.

Chicken Squash Stir-Fry

This chicken squash stir-fry meets all of those criteria and more. It has chicken (thighs or breasts will work), broccoli, onion, and zucchini or summer squash, and can easily change flavors with the addition of homemade spice blends. I prefer a simple seasoning of garlic, salt, and pepper, though curry powder is another great addition.

    I just tried this because all I had leftover was chicken and squash and spices…I added asparagus instead of brocolli. This is DELICIOUS! I will definitely make this again!
