INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast in 1 inch pieces 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¼ cup oyster sauce
  • ¼ cup low sodium chicken broth or water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • salt and pepper to taste

 INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and mushrooms and cook for approximately 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds more.
  3. Remove the vegetables from the pan; place them on a plate and cover.
  4. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.
  5. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add them to the pan in a single layer – you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Add the vegetables back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until the vegetables are warmed through.
  7. In a bowl whisk together the oyster sauce, chicken broth, sugar, sesame oil and soy sauce. In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
  8. Pour the oyster sauce mixture over the chicken and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds. Add the cornstarch and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
