I’m seriously broccoli’s number one fan. If the dish has it, I’m devouring it. I love pretty much anything that has teriyaki and soy sauce–so stir fry is something pretty simple for me to do for an easy dinner (that you can totally portion out later for make-ahead lunches too). Here is my go to recipe for broccoli and chicken stir-fry.
- 2/3 c soy sauce
- 1/4 c dark brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes (or you can use a pinch of chili powder)
- 2 tbsp H2O
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 onion, sliced thin
- 3 c broccoli
Stir soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl to dissolve sugar into the liquid. Mix water and cornstarch together in a small bowl; stir until cornstarch dissolves. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Fry chicken, garlic, and onion in oil about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir broccoli with the chicken, garlic and onion; saute until the broccoli is hot, about 5 minutes. Push the chicken and vegetables mixture to the side of the skillet. Pour the soy sauce mixture into the empty part of the skillet. Stir the cornstarch and water into the soy sauce mixture until mixed. Move the chicken and vegetables back into the center to the pan; saute until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken and vegetables, about 5 minutes. Enjoy over steamed white rice, or brown rice!
This is a great dish to end the weekend with, along with the beer or wine of your choice. ❤
