Chinese Chicken & Broccoli

Chinese Chicken and Broccoli

from A Teaspoon of Happiness

I really enjoyed this yummy Asian dish! I thought it tasted like what you would get in a restaurant! Enjoy!
  
INGREDIENTS

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large head of broccoli or one package frozen broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon oil

MARINADE:

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

SAUCE:

  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons water

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a small bowl – pour oven chicken.

2. Marinate the chicken while preparing the sauce and broccoli. Steam broccoli for just 3 minutes (or defrost the  frozen broccoli), then set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients.

3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add chicken with marinade and ¼ cup of the sauce mixture. Sauté until chicken is golden brown, stirring frequently.

4. Add remaining sauce and the steamed broccoli. Cook for 2 minutes to thicken sauce.

Serve with rice or on its own! Or be Russian like me and enjoy it with some buckwheat! 🙂
