Sesame Chicken with Broccoli

4 cups (or more) frozen broccoli florets
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 red pepper cut into thin 1ish inch stripes or diced
1 onion diced
1 clove garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2-3 tablespoons honey

Cook/defrost broccoli. Cook chicken in oil for about 5 minutes flipping halfway through. Add sesame oil, peppers and onions, cook a few minutes, add broccoli and remaining ingredients. Cook until the sauce thickens. Serve over rice.

This was so good that we've had it several times in the month since we discovered the recipe. I modified it a bit to make it easier and so I wouldn't have to buy things at the grocery store that I didn't think I'd be able to use in other recipes.

I found this recipe via the Advocare tumblr. I wanted to give the 24 Day Challenge a try so I wanted to try so more gluten free, sugar free (I guess honey doesn't count?), diary free recipes. I tried being gluten free for a month in law school to see if it would help my allergies and eczema, if I had a gluten allergy then that would make my other allergies and skin worse, the only think that happened was I lost weight because I couldn't way the free pizza at the law school or other stuff so now when I want to lose weight I go "gluten free" so I have a reason not to eat pizza or cookies. I don't mean to trivialize the concerns of people who have gluten allergies or have celiac disease and cannot eat gluten.
