Ingredients

  • 2 large or 3 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into one-inch chunks
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to season chicken to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 8 ounces sliced baby bella mushrooms

Stir Fry Sauce

  • cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried ginger or freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch + ¼ cup cold water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until no longer pink, about 4-5 minutes per side. To achieve the golden color, try not to move chicken until ready to flip. Remove to a separate plate and set aside.
  • Wipe skillet, if needed, and add more olive oil. Add broccoli and mushrooms and sauté until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 5-6 minutes.
  • As vegetables cook, in a medium bowl, whisk chicken broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, garlic and ginger. **If you like extra sauce, feel free to double ingredients**
  • Once vegetables are tender, add chicken back to skillet and pour in sauce. Stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, stir cornstarch and cold water until dissolved. Stir into pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice or noodles, if desired.

Notes

  • Stir fry will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
