Chicken Stir Fry

Mr. T's boss brought him some fresh broccoli and cauliflower from her garden and my mind went straight to stir fry.  Lucky for us Publix had chicken on sale.  :)

This was a really good dish.  There's a lot of ingredients but it's easy to make.

Chicken Stir Fry:
(inspired by

4 ounces of chicken breast, cut into cubes
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons oil
1 cup broccoli florets
1 bell pepper, sliced into strips
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into strips
1 cup sugar snap peas
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1 scallion, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 chicken bouillon cube

In a large Ziploc bag add the chicken pieces and toss with the corn starch.  In a small bowl mix together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic powder.  Add the sauce to the bag of chicken and cornstarch.  Make sure everything is covered and store in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

In a large skillet heat up 2 tablespoons of the oil.  Cook chicken for 3-5 minutes, or until no longer pink.  Remove and add the remaining oil.  Add the vegetables and cook for 3-4 minutes, they should be tender but still crisp.

Add the chicken back to the pan.  Add water, Worcestershire sauce, and bouillon cube.  Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
