Ginger Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

Ginger Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry with Oyster Sauce recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Tender strips of chicken, and hot, crisp vegetables combined with an Asian inspired sauce is one of the easiest and most popular ways that I get dinner on the table. Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables to use in a stir fry. The florets hold so much sauce and each bite is full of flavor. The oyster sauce in this recipe adds a savory note that we all enjoyed.

Most of our Asian dishes incorporate a bit of heat or spice, however this is a very flavorful and delicious dish that my whole family enjoyed without any heat at all. If you're like me and can't have too many easy stir-fry dinners, here are a few more you'll want to save for later!

Ginger Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry with Oyster Sauce
recipe loosely adapted from Cooking Canuck
(printable recipe)

3 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 1 1lb, cut into 1/2" strips
1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
3" piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped very small, about 3 tablespoons minced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 bunch of broccoli, cut into small florets, about 4 cups florets
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon arrowroot or cornstarch
Optional: 1-2 cups of baby mushrooms, halved as desired

Whisk together the oyster sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and arrowroot. Set aside.

In a very large skillet or wok, warm the oil over high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring or tossing frequently, until it is browned, about 10 minutes. Add the ginger, green onions, garlic, broccoli and mushrooms if desired. Cook, stirring or tossing constantly, until the pan is fragrant and the broccoli turns bright green, about 2-3 minutes.

Add water to the mixture and use a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape up all the browned bits. Pour in the soy sauce mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until it thickens, about 1 minute. Serve over rice if desired. Enjoy!
