As you know, I do a lot of batch cooking every Sunday, prepping all the healthy meals Cameron and I will eat through out the week. My menu planning usually follows the same pattern: a soup, a lunch entree and at least one quick mid week meal. The mid week meal is pretty much the only thing I cook start to finish during the work week so it has to be simple and fast.
This is one of those recipes. AIP friendly, healthy, fast and delicious. You can even make the sauce and chop the veggies one night to speed things up.
If you serve this with rice or noodles it can definitely serve 4 but since starting aip, I eat very large portions - which is fine because my meals are pretty much big bowls of veggies and protein. In the Vizenor household, this recipe is dinner for two with leftovers for one.
Caramelized Chicken + Broccoli Stir Fry

1 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
