Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth can also use water
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes or until broccoli is tender.
  • Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds more.
  • Remove the vegetables from the pan; place them on a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and add them to the pan in a single layer - you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Add the broccoli mixture back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until the vegetables are warmed through.
  • In a bowl whisk together the oyster sauce, chicken broth, sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce and cornstarch.
  • Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken and vegetables and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
  • Serve immediately, with rice if desired.
