stir fry chicken and broccoli

It’s Saturday! 🙂 Whoo! I finally finished the first part of my research paper. 1 part down, 4 more parts to go! I was craving stir fry but I didn’t have the usual stir fry ingredients and I’m too lazy to drive to the grocery story. That’s when this amazing stir fry happened! It goes great over a bowl of rice or some pasta. I’m contemplating getting a nikon coolpix L110. Is that a good idea? o_o My camera is seriously dying on me.

This was the best I could get 😦 Talk about bummer.

Here’s the recipe..
Stir Fry Chicken and Broccoli
2 chicken breast
1-2 cloves of broccoli (depending on how much you want in your stir fry)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons of oyster sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon grated ginger
pepper to taste (do NOT need salt! the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and oyster sauce have enough salt!)
oil for frying
**disclaimer: if you would like a thicker sauce then add a tablespoon or two of corn starch. I happen to like the sauce on the runny side.

1. In a bowl, combine all the sauces, brown sugar, and sesame oil and set aside.
2. In a wok or large pan, heat oil with garlic and ginger. Once most of the oil has evaporated add in the chicken breast. The chicken doesn’t really require any seasoning because of the salt in the sauce. However, if you would like to do so that’s fine. Just bear in mind that there’s already plenty of salt in the sauce. Cook chicken breast for about 2 minutes on each side.
3. Once the chicken is cooked, put it on a plate and cut into strips. You could do that before hand but I find it easier to slice once it’s cooked.
4. Add broccoli and sauce to the wok and stir fry for about 5 minutes. Maybe less depending on your stove.
5. Once the broccoli is cooked to the crunchiness that you like, add the chicken back into the wok. Stir to combine everything and add pepper to taste. I honestly don’t think salt is necessary but if you’re living dangerously on the salty side feel free to add some.
6. Spoon some on top of a bowl of rice and you’re good to go! 🙂 Enjoy!
