  • 1 lb (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil for cooking
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked rice for serving

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Marinate the Chicken: In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, minced garlic, cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Add the sliced chicken to the marinade, ensuring each piece is evenly coated. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Blanch the Broccoli: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and cook for 2-3 minutes until they turn bright green and are slightly tender. Drain the broccoli and set it aside.
  3. Cook the Chicken: Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken strips and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until they are cooked through and golden brown.
  4. Combine with Broccoli: Once the chicken is cooked, add the blanched broccoli florets to the skillet. Stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  5. Sauce it Up: Pour chicken broth or water into the skillet to deglaze it, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Let it simmer for a minute to thicken slightly and coat the chicken and broccoli with the sauce.

Astuces (Tips):

  • For an extra kick of flavor, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a dash of Sriracha sauce to the marinade.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix an additional teaspoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of water and stir it into the skillet during the final cooking stage.

Voilà! Your Chicken with Broccoli is ready to be served. This nutritious and flavorful dish is not only easy to make but also perfect for those looking to enjoy a healthy and satisfying meal. Whether you’re cooking for yourself or your family, this recipe is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Bon appétit!
