This chicken and broccoli stir-fry gives a whole new meaning to the label “easy chicken dinner”. It’s easy to prepare, but the end result is full of flavor and is sure to satisfy you! Plus, it’s a healthy chicken recipe that will help you keep your New Year’s resolutions.
I’ve always loved chicken stir-fry recipes. My mom used to make stir-fry vegetables when I was little, so now I always want to.
Here you have chicken bites fried until golden brown. Then the broccoli is cooked until tender, then you mix the chicken and broccoli with a teriyaki sauce.
This combination of flavors is so tasty that it will help reduce the cravings for take-out Chinese food without frying or calories.
And to make it even healthier, you can accompany the brown rice with a tablespoon of brown sugar and another tablespoon of honey.
But whatever you do here, don’t forget the corn starch! It’s a key ingredient and this dish wouldn’t be the same without it.
As I mentioned before, I recommend using Argo corn starch. It’s a brand I’ve always used and I love their convenient containers for staying fresh with a resealable lid.
