Thick, garlicky gravy smothers golden chicken and tender-crisp broccoli in this Chinese dish. It’s so easy, it may just become a weekly staple.


Olive oil

2 tsp

Garlic clove(s)

3 clove(s), medium sized, minced, or more to taste

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s), cut into 1-inch pieces

Dried thyme

Canned chicken broth

1½ Tbsp

Long grain cooked brown rice

2 cup(s), kept hot


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Season chicken with thyme, salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cook until browned on all sides, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add broccoli to skillet, cover and cook 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of broth, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
