Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Broccoli Stir Fry

8 oz Chicken
2 bunch Broccoli
2 clove Garlic
3 tsp Ginger Root
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
4 tsp Sugars, Granulated
0.1 cup Cornstarch
1 tsp Salt, Table
1 dash Salt, Table
1 oz Sherry
1 tbsp Oil, Sesame
0.3 cup (8 fl oz) Water
3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 tbsp Hoisin Sauce

Recipe Directions for Chicken Broccoli Stir Fry

  1. In a medium bowl, toss the chicken with the scallion whites, about half the garlic and ginger, the soy sauce, sugar, 1 teaspoon of the cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of the salt, the sherry, and the sesame oil. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes. Mix the remaining cornstarch with 1/3 cup water.

  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and heat. Add the broccoli stems, and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the florets and the remaining garlic, ginger, 2 tablespoons of water, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Stir-fry until the broccoli is bright green but still crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Get the skillet good and hot again, and then heat 2 more tablespoons oil. Add the chicken and chili flakes if using. Stir-fry until the chicken loses its raw color and gets a little brown, about 3 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce, return the broccoli to the pan and toss to heat through. Stir in the reserved cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil to thicken. Add more water if need to thin the sauce, if necessary. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if you like. Mound the stir-fry on a serving platter or divide among 4 plates and garnish with sesame seeds; serve with rice.
