CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI STIR FRY

What exactly do we mean by the term ‘stir fry’? Stir frying is used especially for Chinese food. It’s a method of cooking that involves cooking small pieces of meat/veggies over high heat usually in a wok or a frying pan and constantly stirring.

I love Chinese food so today’s menu included a simple chicken and broccoli stir fry served over some hot jasmine rice!

SERVINGS: 3

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 1 lb chicken chunks, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

FOR CHICKEN MARINADE:

  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tbsp JGM Products Chinese seasoning
  • 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 gloves grated garlic

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp JGM Products Cayenne Pepper

 

METHOD:

  1. Add all the ingredients stated under ‘FOR THE CHICKEN MARINADE’ to the chicken chunks in a bowl.
  2. Stir and mix well. Add broccoli. Set aside and allow to marinate for 1-2 hours.
  3. Combine all ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
  4. Add olive oil to a frying pan/wok (I used my skillet) over medium/high heat.
  5. Add chicken and broccoli and stir continuously until chicken and broccoli are 3/4 way cooked.
  6. Add the sauce made in step 3. Stir well until all chicken and broccoli and evenly coasted.
  7. SERVE over hot jasmine or basmati rice.
  8. TIME TO EAT!

This takes about 5-10 minutes to cook. One point to note is that broccoli cooks very quickly and usually should be added when you are almost finished cooking the other ingredients. I chose to add it the same time with the chicken in this recipe though as the chicken pieces were small and therefore did not require any lengthy cooking period.

Chicken and Broccoli is a really quick and easy dish to make for lunch or dinner and it is DELISH!

I hope you give a try and let me know what you think.
