Broccoli Pork Rice Bowl

This recipe was supposed to be made with chicken, and definitely could still be used with your favorite protein. However, I accidentally took the pork chops out of the freezer thinking they were chicken breasts (I made the mistake of putting them in an unmarked bag).

I added some cayenne pepper and garlic salt to the original recipe for additional flavor. If you aren't a fan of either, play around with your favorite spices! You could also add your favorite veggies to the dish, much like a stir fry.
