Sesame Chicken & Broccoli

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.


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


1/3 cup pineapple marinade
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tbls chili oil

2 1/2 cups of broccoli

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.
