chicken breast, cut into pieces
and 1 tsp corn flour
large thumb piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely sliced
garlic cloves, minced
and 1 tbsp sesame oil
cooking oil (I used olive oil)
of broccoli, cut into florets
(250g) of chesnut mushrooms, sliced
Trim chicken breast of any excess fat and pat dry with paper towels. In a medium bowl, toss chicken breast with 1 tbsp each of soya sauce, sesame oil and cornflour, leave to tenderise for at least 30 minutes
To make the sauce: in a bowl add the chicken stock, soya sauce, oyster sauce, ginger, garlic and 2 tsp sesame oil and stir until smooth. Set aside.
Heat a wok or large heavy-bottomed skillet on medium high heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Once oil is hot, add chicken pieces and spread out evenly. Let chicken sit for a minute before stirring, then stir fry 5 minutes or until browned. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
Add another 1 Tbsp of oil to the same pan. Once oil is hot, add the broccoli florets, shallot and sliced mushrooms to the pan and stir-fry 4 minutes, or until mushrooms are softened and broccoli is crisp-tender.
Stir the sauce again then pour it your hot vegetables. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add a teaspoon of corn flour to mug and add a splash of hot water and stir. Add the cornflour mixture into the vegetables and sauce, Simmer for 2 -3 minutes or until sauce is thickened then add in the cooked chicken and cook for another minute or until heated through. Serve as a one pot or with rice.
