Sesame Chicken & Broccoli

Sesame-chicken-brocolli

When it comes to Chinese food, every variation is a staple in my house.  The sweet, spicy and saltiness this dish gives is a true delight.  By marinating the chicken in baking soda for 30 minutes prior to preparing, it will allow you to experience the true tenderness of authentic Chinese food.

Ingredients:

Chicken marinade

5 chicken breast cubed
1/3 cup pineapple marinade
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbls red wine
1 tbls sugar in the raw (brown sugar will work fine)
1 tsp chili oil

1/2 cup corn starch
1/3 cup olive oil

Sauce

1/3 cup pineapple marinade
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tbls chili oil
1 clove garlic crushed
1/2 tsp sugar in the raw
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbs cornstarch
1/2 white onion
1/4 cup green onion chopped
2 1/2 cups of broccoli
2 tbls sesame seeds

Directions:

Marinate the chicken in all the marinade ingredients for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
Dredge the chicken in the cornstarch and fry in the olive oil n a skillet until completely cooked.  Remove from the skillet and set aside.

Whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl except the white and green onion and broccoli and sesame seeds.

In the skillet the chicken was cooked in, add 2 tsp olive oil and brown the sesame seeds.  Add the sauce, the onions, broccoli and chicken.  Mix well and let simmer for 15 minutes, frequently stirring.

Serve over brown rice.

Enjoy!
