Instructions

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil, ginger and garlic; cook 15 seconds. Add chicken and stir-fry until starting to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a plate.
  2. Add remaining teaspoon of vegetable oil, pepper and broccoli to same skillet; stir-fry for 3 minutes.

Notes

We chopped the nuts so we could cut back on the total amount used but still sprinkle a lot on the dish.
