Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry by CK
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1/4 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
Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a Kitchen Fair 10″ Expressions fry pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and mushrooms and cook for approximately 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds more. Remove the vegetables from the pan; place them on a plate and cover. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil. 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. Add the vegetables back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until the vegetables are warmed through. 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. 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. Serve immediately, with rice if desired.
