Broccoli Cashew ChickenWho’s ready for dinner??

Last night I made this Broccoli Cashew Chicken and it turned out great.. no recipe or anything.

So I am sharing it with you so your family might enjoy it!

It was funny because there were two pieces of broccoli left and I didn’t know quite what to do with them and was just going to toss them (I know.. bad “frugal momma”).

But just as I was doing it my youngest stepped over and asked for them.. so way to go “teachin’ your kids to like veggies momma“.. lol!
