"You don't need a wok to make this just a large skillet --- this recipe will feed 2-3 people but can be doubled easily and all amounts may be adjusted to taste --- if you prepare the chicken and broccoli florets ahead of time this recipe takes little time to prepare, I sometimes add in matchstick-size carrots also, the red pepper flakes may be adjusted to suit heat level, my family likes extreme spice so add in lots! :)"

"This was FANTASTIC!!! I added mushrooms, carrots and frozen sugar peas. A keeper for sure!!! Thanks Kittencal-When is your cookbook coming out???? I will be the first in line to buy it!!!!"
"This is so amazing! It's a household favorite. My husband is allergic to shellfish so we use teriyaki marinade as substitute for the oyster sauce and that's worked out pretty well, I still put a little oyster sauce on my food because it's delicious. I've also found that putting the sliced chicken into a slurry of cornstarch and soy sauce for about 30 minutes before cooking keeps it nice and tender. A can of water chestnuts is a great addition to this recipe as well!"
"Delicious. Modified a few things. (for lack of ingredients) sauteed one regular onion instead of green onion (had none around) in the sesame oil added 1/3 cup hoisen sauce and subtracted the oyster sauce (didn't have that either), put the broccoli and onion, in a large baking pan alongside the salted/peppered cut up chicken pieces, not breasts. poured remaining sauce and broccoli over the whole pot, baked 350 for 1.5 hours. sprinkled the sesame on, and served over rice. perfect."
"Outstanding! This was sooo good! I made my own hoisin sauce and omitted the oyster sauce. I also added 1/2 a bag of frozen peas & carrots, but otherwise made as stated. Loved it! My 4 year old said it was the best chicken he'd ever had!! :)"
"Very Good. We enjoyed this meal for dinner tonight very much. I did add 2 carrots in with the broccoli and I needed to cook both for about 5 minutes. I cooked my chicken for 5 minutes and added fresh mushrooms (about 6) the last two minutes. I did omit the sesame seed. Thanks for posting."
"This was good. I didn't have any oyster sauce, so I used soy sauce instead. To get more veggies in there, I added some snap peas and matchstick carrots along with the broccoli. I also toasted the sesame seeds in a dry skillet before adding them. This was really easy and can be adapted for whatever ingredients you have on hand!"
"Pretty yummy! Was happy to find this because I didn't have to run out to the store to get anything new! I did play with the recipe a little though-- I added ginger, used grapeseed oil (sesame oil is a little strong for my taste), and I marinated the chicken in 2 tbsp of soy sauce & 1 tsp oil for about 2 hours before cooking (the oil keeps the pieces from sticking together). I also mixed the sauce on the side and added only as much as I needed. I used 1 part hoisin, 1 part oyster sauce because I like my stir frys a little sweeter. Just a tip, cutting your meat into small, thin strips/pieces works better in stir frys because each piece gets a good coat of sauce without drying out the meat. Also, you may want to let the pieces brown in the oil before adding the sauce to prevent burning. Thanks, kitten =)"
"The sauce has such a depth of flavor. I added mushrooms, green, red and yellow bell peppers and vidalia onions. Very delicious!"
"I cut the recipe in half as there is only 2 of us and we have enough leftover for lunch tomorrow! DH loved the flavour of the dish. Different from other stir fry dishes I have tried before! Will certainly do this one again!!! Thanks Kittencal!!!"
"Once again Kittencal has done it. This is a fantastic recipe. I didn't have chicken broth, so I just used water, and I had to sub thai fish sauce for the oyster sauce and I didn't have scallions, but this turned out wonderfully. Just the right amount of heat. Just before serving to my family I stirred in a few cups of cooked rice, and got compliments from everyone. I can't wait to try it as written, but even with the substitutions I had to make it was worth 5 stars. Thanks for another great tasting recipe!"
"It's soo good! Made it for the second time last night. I recommend making it just as it's directed if you can, because it's amazing. I had never used sesame oil before but the flavor it gives the food really makes it taste authentic. I made it on a whim last night but was missing hoisin sauce, scallions, and `sesame oil. It was still delicious with just olive oil and oyster sauce, but next time I'll make sure I have everything on hand because it makes for a super easy and delicious weeknight meal. :)"
"made this tonight. I added carrots. I added cornstarch (enough to sprinkle over all of chicken) to chicken prior to cooking to keep moisture in. We learned this in an Asian cooking class. Added lots of flakes for a kick. Served over angel hair pasta.
Easier to make than other stir fry recipes and just as good! Can't wait for leftovers tomorrow. Thanks!"
"Lovely! This is a restaurant-quality, easy dish, with lots of versatility so it's definitely a keeper in my home. I used 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper and it was not hot for me at all, may use a teaspoon next time if I'm in the mood for some heat! I goofed up and accidentally used almost 1 cup chicken broth (was in a hurry and thought it was 8 Tbsp in a cup lol), and it still turned out wonderful. Thanks Kittencal for another great recipe!"
"Another winner recipe. I doubled the broccoli, used 3 chicken breasts (using the food processor to thinly slice), and kept the rest of the ingredients the same. I had to purchase the hoisin and oyster sauces as I had never tried them before; but we really loved the end result!"
"yum - forgot the sesame seeds tho."
"Very yummy! If you serve this with rice, I think it could feed 3-4 people. I followed the instructions fairly closely except for the oil. I cooked everything in broth instead of oil and added 1 tsp of sesame oil at the end. It is a very delicate oil that loses much of its flavor if it is heated too much. I toasted the sesame seeds before sprinkling over the dish and there was plenty of sesame flavor!"
"Great stir-fry, very versatile and not too sweet, just perfect for me. I will put onion in it next time."
