Chicken And Broccoli Stir Fry

Ingredients

Chicken and Broccoli:

  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (450g / 1 lb, cut into 3/4″ pieces): Provides a lean, protein-rich base.
  • Cooking Oil 2 Tbsp, divided, preferably extra light olive oil: For frying the ingredients.
  • Broccoli Florets 450g / 1 lb, about 5 cups: Adds crunch and nutrients.
  • Yellow Onion 1 small, sliced into strips: Adds sweetness and flavor.
  • White Button Mushrooms 225g / 1/2 lb, thickly sliced: Adds earthiness and texture.

Stir Fry Sauce:

  • Low Sodium Chicken Broth 160ml / 2/3 cup: Adds a savory base.
  • Low Sodium Soy Sauce 45ml / 3 Tbsp: Adds umami flavor.
  • Light Brown Sugar or Honey 2 Tbsp: Adds sweetness.
  • Corn Starch 1 Tbsp: Thickens the sauce.
  • Sesame Oil 1 Tbsp: Adds a rich, nutty flavor.
  • Fresh Ginger 1 tsp, grated: Adds warmth and spice.
  • Garlic 1 tsp, grated, 2 small cloves: Adds a robust, aromatic flavor.
  • Black Pepper 1/4 tsp: Adds a mild heat.

Instructions

  • Prepare the Sauce: Whisk together all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. The warm broth will help dissolve the sugar faster. Set aside.
  • Cook the Chicken: Season the chicken lightly with pepper and fry it in a heated skillet with some oil. Once golden brown and cooked through, remove and keep warm.
  • Cook the Vegetables: In the same skillet, stir fry the broccoli, onion, and mushrooms with some oil until softened.
  • Add the Sauce: Pour the sauce over the vegetables, simmer until thickened. If needed, add a bit of water to thin the sauce.
  • Combine and Serve: Add the chicken back into the pan, stir until heated through. Taste and add more soy sauce if needed. Serve this delightful dish over hot rice.

Notes

Feel free to substitute the chicken with tofu for a vegetarian version, or swap broccoli for other vegetables like bell peppers or snow peas. Serve it with brown rice for a fiber boost.
