Recipe Notes

  • Not a fan of broccoli? Substitute your favorite vegetable like asparagus, zucchini, onions, sugar snap peas, snow peas or green beans.
  • You can use boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine all the sauce ingredients. Mix well and set aside.
  2. Season the with chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on all sides and just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove to a plate.
  3. Heat the other 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the broccoli and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. 
  4. Pour in the sauce. Simmer until sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and cook about 1 more minute.
