How to cook:
  1. To a large skillet, add the oil, chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until chicken is about 80% cooked through, stir and flip intermittently.
  2. Add the lime zest, lime juice, garlic, ginger, stir to combine. Cook for about 1 minute, or until garlic is fragrant. Stir intermittently.
  3. Add the coconut milk, soy sauce, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the broccoli, sugar snap peas, red peppers, carrots, green onions, bring coconut milk up to a gentle boil, and allow vegetables to cook until crisp-tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Taste broth and make any necessary seasoning adjustments, i.e. more salt, pepper, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, etc.
  6. Evenly sprinkle with basil, cilantro, and serve immediately. (Immediately upon taking the stir fry off the heat, there was quite a bit of excess coconut milk broth but as it cooled some of the broth must have soaked into the chicken and veggies and the overall volume appeared reduced after about 30 minutes).
