  2. Lightly season chicken with salt and pepper.

Editor's Note:

If you saw this recipe in the "Vegetable Insurgency" article in the Jun/Jul/Aug 2015 issue of Allrecipes, we added 1/2 pound of broccoli florets to it. If you want to add the crunch of crisp-tender broccoli to this dish, add the florets in Step 3 when you brown the chicken strips.
