  • 1 cup broccoli

  • 1/2 cup yellow pepper

Nutrition Tip

Making a stir-fry gives you the freedom to be creative and personalize your dish. In this recipe, we use chicken as the main source of protein.

Vitamin C is found in more than just oranges. Broccoli and peppers are rich in this important antioxidant. Additionally, carrots are rich in Vitamin A which helps maintain healthy skin, teeth, skeletal and soft tissues. These and other nutritious vegetables contain many unique phytonutrients with disease preventing and health promoting properties.

Feel free to substitute one or more of the vegetables in this recipe for any phytonutrient-rich vegetable you may like better. Just remember to keep this dish colorful and fresh.
