chinese fast food: chicken and broccoli stir-fry

It’s day 3 of my new job in Regina and I am pooped.  All this commuting is taking its toll on me as I leave the house by 7am and don’t get home ’til around 5:30pm.  Yuck.  Anyway, while my body is adjusting to the long days, by the time I get home I just wanna cook up something fast and easy for dinner and then flop onto the couch.  Tonight I made a stir-fry that my sister, Reyna, made for me before that’s quick and tasty.  It’s also got the added benefit of getting some much-needed veggies into my body.

Serves 2 – 3 people

2 chicken breasts  /  about 1 crown of broccoli  /  3-4 cloves of garlic  /  soy sauce  /  sesame oil  /  canola oil


Mince (or press with a garlic press like I did tonight because that’s how tired and lazy I am) the garlic and roughly cut up the broccoli and chicken into bite-size pieces.  Heat up a splash of canola oil in a wok over medium-high heat.  Stir in the garlic and then the chicken, cooking for a few minutes until the chicken is close to being cooked through.  Add the broccoli and then pour over some soy sauce, maybe about 3 to 4 tsp depending on your taste, and some sesame oil, about 1 and a 1/2 tsp.  Stir-fry until the chicken has cooked through and the broccoli is cooked through but still has some good bite to it.  Serve with steamed rice.


We are now good and full and happily lounging in front of the tv.
