Directions

  • Stir soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl to dissolve sugar into the liquid. Mix water and cornstarch together in a small bowl; stir with a whisk until cornstarch dissolves completely.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Fry chicken and onion in hot oil until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the onion is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir broccoli with the chicken and onion; saute until the broccoli is hot, about 5 minutes. Push the chicken and vegetables mixture to the side of the skillet.

  • Pour the soy sauce mixture into the vacant part of the skillet. Stir the cornstarch slurry into the soy sauce mixture until the color is consistent. Move the chicken and vegetables back into the center to the pan; saute until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken and vegetables, about 5 minutes more.

There is simplicity and depth of flavor packed in every single bite. It felt like I was eating gourmet Chinese food from P.F. Changs. I vow to never order this as takeout EVER AGAIN! Even the kids said it tasted better than Chinese food. I pretty much followed as is and I have ZERO complaints. This will be a go to staple in my home. Off to make a second batch!

To be honest I made this recipe b/c I didn't have any sherry in the house and was looking for a quick and easy recipe my 10-yr old daughter and I could do together. I prepared ingredients as instructed but I did a few things differently: 1. I removed the chicken from the wok as soon as it was cooked so that it wouldn't get dry and then I put it back int the wok once the broccoli had cooked for a few minutes (had turned a slightly emerald/deep green). 2. I put in most but not all of the soy sauce mixture (into which I had also add fresh garlic/ginger and not powdered). 3. I only added about half of the cornstarch/water mix. I suggest adding a little at a time if you are cooking at a med high/high heat you will be able to tell when you have enough. These little changes really helped and allowed for moist chicken crunchy but well cooked broccoli and a not-too goopy sauce!

I'm made this for dinner and loved it! I'm not a salt person so it was a little too salty and I found it to have a bit too much sauce so I will cut the sauce by about a 1/3 but loved it! Will be demoing this for my students tomorrow.

This recipe is great. A little too salty for my taste. Next time I will try low sodium soy sauce/more water.

I would have given this 5 stars but I made a few changes. I used 1/3 cup of low-sodium soya sauce. I did not use any oil for frying. I cooked the chicken in a small amount of water let the water cook off and then seasoned it. I added a touch of onion powder and cayenne pepper to the soya sauce mixture. I also added minced garlic and ginger to the soya sauce mixture. Once I mixed up the chicken with the sauce I added hot sauce (since I love my food spicy). It came out great. My boyfriend could not stop stealing pieces from the pot. I will definitely add this to the rotation!

I found it way too goopy. Way to much sauce for the amount of chicken and broccoli the recipe called for also to salty.

This tasted pretty good. The only substitution I made is low-sodium soy sauce instead of regular. I also used about a quarter less soy sauce than the recipe called for. The issue I faced is that this dish is not good for leftovers. The next day I brought it to work and tried to heat it up in the microwave. It was extremely gloopy and thick. I think next time I will try to use half the amount of cornstarch to make the recipe a little thinner and more leftover-friendly.
