  • 2 large (or 3 small-medium) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup water or chicken broth
  • Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce or oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cold water + 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • green onions and sesame seeds for garnish
  • Instructions

  • Whisk together all sauce ingredients (except for water and corn starch) and set aside.
  • Drizzle a large skillet over medium heat with oil. Add chicken, season with Chinese five spice, and saute for 6-8 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside. 
  • Add broccoli florets to pan, saute 2-3 minutes until broccoli starts to become crisp on the edges. Add 1/3 cup water or chicken broth and cook for 4-6 minutes longer until broccoli is fork-tender. 
  • Add chicken back to pan. Pour sauce into the pan and give it a good stir. Whisk together 1/2 cup cold water and corn starch until dissolved, then stir into the pan. Once sauce has thickened (about 1 minute) cook 2-3 minutes longer, then garnish with onions and sesame seeds and serve.
