Chicken and Broccoli Skillet Stir-Fry

"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! :)"

Questions & Replies

  1. I’m a little afraid of oyster sauce, does everyone add it?
  2. What makes this recipe so high in carbs?


  1. Even easier- use a bag of broccoli slaw.
  2. 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!!!!
  3. 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!
  4. Very tasty and easy to make. I was looking for something new to add to our evening meals and this one will go in our rotation! I used about 2lb of chicken and upped everything proportionally, more or less eyeballing it, even added some carrot slices to finish off a couple I found in the fridge. Very flexible so looking forward to trying different things next time.
  5. Awesome recipe, just add minced garlic! That's the original recipe :)


  1. Used mixture of vegetables instead broccoli only.
  2. 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!
