Chinese New Year Continues…
Start with steamed dumplings, then move to this dish followed by Radicchio & Edamame Salad and finish off with homemade fortune cookies.
3 chicken breasts, 1/2 a head of broccoli, 1/2 c. shredded carrots, 1/4 c. soy sauce, 1/8 c. rice vinegar, 2 Tbsp. minced onions, 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic, 1 Tbsp. sesame oil, 1/4 tsp. fresh ginger
Cut broccoli into florets. Bring pot of water to boil and lightly steam broccoli, set aside. Thinly cut chicken into small pieces. Heat soy sauce in wok and sauté onions and garlic. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink inside. Add oil, vinegar, and ginger and simmer. Toss broccoli and carrots into chicken and coat with sauce. Serve hot.
*Garnish with sesame seeds and serve over lo-mein noodles or steamed rice.
I use this same recipe to make Beef & Broccoli for Hubster, I just didn’t want to make two separate meals last night. I also steam my broccoli longer because I like it to be a bit on the mushy side, but most people don’t like it like that.
What are your weekend plans?
