Classic Chicken and Broccoli

About This Recipe:

Chicken and broccoli is one of my favorite Chinese-American dishes. It really only requires 2 main ingredients, and can be prepared in under 30 minutes! I never order this dish at restaurants because it’s so easy to make at home, and I look forward to plenty of leftovers. And the best part of making it at home is that you can make EXTRA sauce for your bowl of rice!


Ingredients (4 servings)
-1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
-1.25 lbs chicken breast, thinly sliced
-4 garlic cloves, minced
-4 cups cooked jasmine rice
-Vegetable oil

-2 tbls soy sauce
-1 tbl oyster sauce
-1 tbl rice wine vinegar
-1 tbl cornstarch
-2 tsps sugar
-1/2 cup water

Instructions (25 minutes) 
1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook the broccoli florets for 1-2 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water to prevent overcooking.
2. In a large skillet over high heat, pour in 1-2 tbls of vegetable oil. Sear the chicken slices for 2-3 minutes per side until fully cooked, and then transfer to a dish.
3. Add another tablespoon of vegetable oil to the skillet and cook the garlic for 1 minute. In a small bowl, mix the sauce ingredients and pour into the skillet. Let the sauce thicken for a few minutes.
5. Stir in the chicken and broccoli and coat in the sauce. Serve over rice.
