Recipe

This recipe is a twist on the classic beef and broccoli dish but made with chicken thighs instead. I wish I could say that it was purposeful, but I just accidentally forgot to buy the beef for the dish and was too lazy to head back to the store. Luckily, the result was good enough to share. Chicken breast would work as well, but I prefer the more tender thigh.
