Going back to school means busy schedules and routines for most families, but that also means high expectations and good intentions sometimes get left in the shadows of convenience and crazy. It's totally normal, but not what everyone wants.
One of those parts of life that fit into the "high expectations and good intentions" list is healthy meals as a family. Whether your five kids are all at different sports every night or you have study groups until 7pm, finding quick, easy, and healthy meals to make at home is hard!
That's exactly why I created this incredible stir fry recipe - it's packed with flavor, wholesome ingredients (like lean protein, veggies, and whole grains), and ready in 30 minutes start to finish. It's also very affordable and allergen-friendly!

Prepare the instant brown rice according to package instructions. Fluff with a fork before serving.
Meanwhile, heat a large wok or nonstick skillet to medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Cook the chicken until little pink remains, then add in the chopped snap peas and cashew halves. Saute until the peas and cashews have softened.
Whisk together the sauce ingredients, then pour over the lemon chicken stir fry. Allow the sauce to thicken, about 3-5 minutes, then lower the heat to simmer and let the sauce infuse into the skillet.
Top with a squirt of lemon juice and sesame seeds. Divide into four portions and serve with the brown rice!
