Cuisine: Asian
  • 500 grams chicken breasts cut into bit size cubes
  • 1 big broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon pepper powder
  • Little salt
For the sauce-
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon garlic chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger chopped
  • ½ cup Chinese cooking wine (or use rice wine, or rice wine vinegar)

  • 1 ½ tablespoon cumin powder

  1. First make the sauce

    In a small bowl whisk together water, Chinese wine vinegar, garlic ginger, brown sugar, low sodium light soy sauce, corn starch, cumin powder into lump free sauce. Keep it ready near the stove.

  2. Heat up a wok or large skillet to smoking hot. Heat sesame oil in the pan. 

  3. Add chicken to hot oil and toss (or if your tossing skills are challenged like me just stir, stir and stir :D) for few seconds until chicken begins to turn pink.

  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper powder over the chicken and stir again. 

  5. Add broccoli florets and cook stirring frequently, until tender, about 2-3 minutes. Don’t forget to stir.

  6. Pour in the stir fry sauce and mix stir. Keep stirring frequently and once the sauce thickens in 2-3 minutes the dish is ready. 

  7. This stir fry broccoli and chicken goes well with brown rice. For low-carb options used cauliflower fried rice. 

  8. Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
