Looking for a Chinese takeout Chicken and Broccoli copy cat recipe? This is by far the closest I’ve come so far to the real thing. It has all the same flavors you’ll find at your favorite Chinese restaurant. It’s sweet and salty with just a touch of heat.
The best part is that it takes only minutes to prepare. Start to finish, I think it took me about 30 minutes to make. To get a flavorful, filling and semi-healthy meal on the table on a weeknight in 30 minutes is almost a miracle.
I like using chicken tenderloins for these types of recipes because they are a bit easier to cut into chunks. Feel free to use chicken breasts though if you prefer. You can eat just the chicken and broccoli alone or you can serve it over rice. For a quick solution, I love using the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice packets that take only 90 seconds in the microwave.
