Deciding what’s for dinner is always a struggle. Especially because I have a picky eater. I try to make meals that I know he will at least eat part of. Tonight we had chicken & broccoli stir fry and although Raylind won’t eat it all put together I can usually get him to eat just the chicken (naked of course).
If you don’t have a lot of time to make a big meal this is the perfect option. What I really like about this recipe is that you can also add/remove items to make it to your liking. So let’s get started!
- 1 Chicken Breast
- 1 Broccoli Head
- 4oz. Mushrooms
- 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic, minced
- 1 Teaspoon Ginger, minced
- 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
- 1/4 Soy Sauce, low sodium
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder (optional)
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
** Note: this recipe makes about 4 servings. You can also add diced onion if you wish.
First you’ll want to dice up your chicken breast at about 1/2 inch (more or less depending on what you like).
Then you’ll put your chicken in the pan and add the sesame oil for cooking. I don’t generally measure out my ingredients, hence why you see me just free pouring the oil. lol.
While your chicken is cooking you’ll want to get your broccoli out. I use a fresh head of broccoli when I’m making this recipe because I like it better fresh. You can also use frozen broccoli if that’s what you have at home. It’s what I use when I don’t have it fresh on hand.
You want to chop it up into basically bite-sized pieces. You don’t have to use the stocks if you don’t want to you. I have a friend who only eats the florets and cuts off the stocks but I like both parts. I also have my mushrooms ready to go. Ray and I were snacking on the broccoli and mushrooms while waiting for the chicken to cook 🙂
Once the chicken is finished cooking you want to set it aside in a bowl and use the same pan to soften your broccoli and mushrooms in more sesame oil. This process doesn’t take very long – roughly 5 minutes.
While your broccoli and mushrooms soften up you want to whisk together your sauce. This includes the broth, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, flour, garlic, and onion powder. I didn’t have any ginger which isn’t a big deal honestly.
You definitely want to use a whisk for this step because it mixes the flour into the liquid quicker and is less messy. I didn’t get a picture of this part because I was doing too many things at once. lol.
Now that your sauce is ready and your broccoli and mushrooms are softened you can add the chicken and sauce mix into the pan and cook until the sauce is thick and everything is coated. Viola! Dinner is ready.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this delicious meal as much as we have! Let me know what you think!
