Sesame Chicken with Broccoli


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, cornstarch, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken pieces to the mixture and toss until evenly coated. Let it marinate for about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Make the Sauce: In another bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, cornstarch, and chicken broth until well combined. Set aside.
  3. Cook the Chicken: Heat a tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken pieces and cook until they are golden brown and cooked through about 5-6 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Cook the Broccoli: In the same skillet, add the broccoli florets and cook for 2-3 minutes until they are tender-crisp.
  5. Combine Everything: Return the cooked chicken to the skillet with the broccoli. Pour the prepared sauce over the chicken and broccoli. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken and broccoli evenly.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle sesame seeds over the sesame chicken and broccoli. Serve hot cooked rice.
