Ingredients

Sunflower oil

2 tsp

Skinless chicken breast

400 g, cut into 2cm pieces

Sesame oil

2 tsp

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Fresh ginger

2 tsp, finely grated

Broccoli

4 cup(s), (380g), fresh or frozen

Salt reduced chicken stock

1 cup(s), (250ml)

Soy sauce

2 tbs

Tomato sauce

2 tbs

Brown sugar

2 tsp

Sambal oelek

2 tsp, (chilli paste)

Cornflour

2 tsp

Green shallot(s)

2 individual, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Heat sunflower oil in large wok over high heat. Stir-fry chicken in two batches for 2-3 minutes each batch, or until lightly browned. Transfer chicken to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add sesame oil, garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add broccoli and toss to coat. Pour in stock, bring to the boil and cover wok. Boil 2-3 minutes or until broccoli is just tender.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk soy sauce, tomato sauce, brown sugar, sambal oelek and cornflour in a small bowl until smooth and combined.
  4. Return chicken to wok with sauce mixture and gently boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and sauce is thickened. Serve sprinkled with shallots.

Notes

TIP: Replace chicken breast with 400g chicken breast stir-fry strips for even quicker prep time.
