One of my favorite meals in the local Chinese restaurant is chicken and broccoli. I simply can’t get enough of it and I always seem to be craving it. I kept finding chicken and broccoli recipes online but I was too scared to try them. One thing that held me back was the oyster sauce. But what the heck, I figured “let’s go for it”!
Boy was I glad I gave this recipe a try. It turned out really tasty, nice and sweet. And don’t worry, the oyster sauce doesn’t smell strong and you can’t even taste it.
Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry
1 – 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into small pieces
1 & ½ tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
¼ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 bag frozen broccoli florets
6 tablespoons chicken broth (divided)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
salt and pepper
¼ cup hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
1. Heat a wok (or large skillet) over medium-high heat. Add 1 & ½ tablespoon sesame oil. Add garlic and dried red pepper flakes. Stir fry for 30 seconds.
2. Add frozen broccoli florets and 4 tablespoons chicken broth. Stir fry broccoli for about 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
3. Add a little more sesame oil to the wok (about 1 tablespoon). Season chicken bits with salt and pepper. Add to the wok and cook until chicken is fully cooked (about 3-5 minutes).
4. Add in remaining 2 tablespoons of chicken broth, oyster sauce, and hoisin sauce. Add broccoli mix well and cook until the mixture has become well heated. Serve with white rice.
