Nourish PA for Kids: Microwave Chicken and Broccoli

Just because you need a meal in a hurry doesn’t mean it can’t be healthy and delicious! If you’ve got 10 minutes and a microwave, you can make this chicken and broccoli dish. The simple sauce is a combo of soy sauce, honey and garlic powder — if you prefer a spicy kick to your food, feel free to mix in a drizzle of hot sauce, a sprinkle of dried chili flakes, or a dash of cayenne pepper!
