Pepper and Broccoli Stir Fry

On Saturday I had some friends over and cut up a bunch of peppers to dip in this ginger miso dressing I discovered on my first adventure to Whole Foods. The dressing was a huge success, but the peppers weren't that big of a hit so I had a lot of them left over. So last night I decided to make a stir fry. I had some broccoli so I threw that in as well. I used boil-in-a-bag brown rice and precooked frozen grilled chicken breast strips. As a sauce I used Kikkoman toasted sesame marinade. My goal was to make it taste like the Contessa Sesame Chicken frozen meal, but with better vegetables (they don't have broccoli, or at least they don't have enough broccoli).

The picture doesn't really show it well, but the veggies were bright and delicious looking. Overall I believe it was a success. The grilled taste of the chicken wasn't great but it sure was convenient. I also should have started the stir fry later, since waiting for the rice held me up. I am having leftovers for lunch today!
