I'm a HUGE fan of 'chicken w. broccoli' from the "Chinese Food Place" and I like it so much I had to figure out how to make it at home & save myself some money.
So, my review is for "Chinese Chicken & Broccoli" , based off this recipie. I don't like much beyond Chicken, Broccoli, Sauce and Rice with this meal - so that's what I made.
I used a medium sized onion, 1/2 thawed bag of frozen broc. florets, garlic from the glass bottle in the fridge. I was indiscriminate with the soy sauce in the marinade (at least 1 cup), and added it all to the pan when cooking. I also used a little more water (just b/c the heat was up too high when I was cooking & the sauce was boiling away).
I added the water, pepper, corn starch & sugar all at the same time, and only 1 minute before adding the bag of frozen broccoli. I didn not cook for 10 minutes (running out of sauce), so I just cooked it until the broc was warm & the chicken was done.
This recipie is VERY easy, allows a lot of room for doing what you want (esp. as far as the sauce, timing & use of fresh food goes). and it tastes VERY GOOD.
I will DEFINATELY make again (prob 1x a week).
BUT be warned, if you're one who likes the sauce, you will need to make more because this recipe doesnt make a lot of the sauce.
