Chicken & Broccoli Stir-Fry: A Favorite Chinese Menu Item
You are going to love this rendition of a take-out favorite!
I was looking to change up our weekday dinner menu and I found this recipe on Pinterest, pinned from SkinnyMs. It is super quick to prepare and cook, and it tastes amazing!
This is a true one-skillet meal, or easily prepared in your favorite electric pressure cooker. There are 12 ingredients that are probably in your pantry, especially if you prepare Asian cuisine from time to time, and there are only 4 cooking steps.
I prepared my ingredients. The bulk of the time was spent cubing the chicken and breaking the broccoli into bite-sized florets.
The first step to cooking is to mix the spices and liquid ingredients together for the sauce.
Then I toasted the sesame seeds. This created a wonderful, nutty aroma! Be careful here! There is a fine line between toasting and burning.
The next step was to cook the chicken. I’m a little OCD with chicken and I probably cooked it longer than necessary. It was a browned medium on the outside, but tender and juicy on the inside.
Then I added the onion, broccoli, ginger, and pepper. Oh, the ginger!!
The final step is adding the sauce I created. When I poured in the sauce, I could smell each of the ingredients warm. The honey, the sesame oil, and the soy sauce were a perfect combination and created a wonderful Asian scent.
I did make one small adjustment to this recipe: I toasted some cashews and added them at the end of the cooking process.
I love Cashew Chicken and thought this was the perfect opportunity to delight my taste buds!
The finished product!
This was the ideal, quick and tasty meal for a Monday! My boyfriend loved it!
