DIRECTIONS

  • Step by step.
  • Prepare rice according to package instructions.
  • Blanch (slightly steam) the broccoli. It should still be fairly crisp.
  • In a small bowl, prepare the sauce by whisking together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and the water first, then add the chicken broth, garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce and pepper flakes.
  • Adjust the pepper flakes to your taste. I used only 1/2 tablespoon so my kids could eat it.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat.
  • In another small bowl, mix the remaining 3 tablespoons of cornstarch, salt and pepper.
  • Throw the chicken pieces into the cornstarch mixture and toss to coat.
  • Working in batches, brown the chicken in the oil.
  • Once all the chicken is browned, put it all back into the skillet.
  • Add the broccoli and the sauce.
  • Cook over for a few minutes more until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thickened.
  • Serve the chicken and broccoli mixture over rice.
  • Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds if desired.
