Super Quick Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry. Who’s in? 🙋♀️The primary ingredients are chicken and broccoli, but as gimmesomeoven encouraged, I used whatever other veggies I had on hand and served over Lo Mein egg noodles. A win!
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
salt and pepper
1 batch Stir-Fry Sauce (see below)
1 bunch broccoli, chopped into small florets, stem discarded
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
toppings: sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds
STIR-FRY SAUCE INGREDIENTS:
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons honey
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
TO MAKE THE STIR-FRY:
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts, and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is browned and mostly cooked through.
While the chicken is cooking, make your sauce:
Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until combined.
Once the chicken is browned, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and broccoli, and stir to combine. Continue cooking for an additional 3 minutes, until the broccoli is bright green. Stir in the sauce, and cook for an additional 1 minute until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil until combined.
Serve warm, garnished with green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
