1 Lb  Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast cut into 1 inch cubes
3 Medium Onions Sliced
1. 1lb Broccoli, Carrot & Cauliflower Frozen Mixed Vegetables
1. 1lb Frozen Pea Pods
1 TSP Minced Garlic
4 OZ Can Mushroom Pieces Drained

Couple Dashes Nutmeg Powder
Couple Dashes Cloves Powder
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
1 TBS Honey
3 Heaping TBS Cornstarch dissolved in 2 Cups Cold Water
1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds

Stir Fry Chicken in 2 TBS Olive Oil. Fry about 5 minutes. Add onions & fry until onions are clear. Add the Frozen Broccoli Mix, & the garlic, all of the spices and the mushrooms. Cook about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and the honey. Stir & cook about 10 minutes. Stir the cornstarch into the water and stir until smooth. Slowly pour this into your stir fry. Cook & stir until mixture is thick & clear in color. Now add the almonds and cook 1 more minute.
