Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

Stir fry dinners are quick, easy and convenient since everything cooks in one pan.  This Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry comes together quickly and is an easy dinner to prepare. With a little prep, you can have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.

2 cups rice, cooked
2 stalks celery, sliced and diced
4 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
4 chicken tenders, cut into small pieces
2 eggs, whisked
2-3 tbls. soy sauce (or more to taste)

In a large covered frying pan (I used an electric fry pan), cook bacon until crisp; remove to a paper towel and let drain; once cooled, crumble bacon.  Add diced celery to bacon drippings, cover pan and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring from time to time.  Add chicken, cover and cook 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, again stirring from time to time.  Add broccoli, cover and cook an additional 5 minutes or until broccoli is al dente.  Push broccoli, chicken and celery to the side of the pan, pour in whisked eggs to center of pan, and cook until well scrambled.  Mix all ingredients in the pan together, add soy sauce and rice and stir to combine.  Top with reserved crumbled bacon. Serve immediately.
