This recipe is a Clinton Kelly original. I found it at Shrinking Kitchen when I was on the hunt for weekly meal plans and SK didn’t disappoint. There are 85 weeks of meal plans on there, which I highly recommend! One of my favorites is the General Tso’s Chicken…. I’m recreating this recipe on my blog for easier access in the future!
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 4 garlic cloves (I used chopped)
- 2 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated)
- 3 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
- 1 pound broccoli (blanched)
- 3 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 pound boneless chicken breast (cut into 1 inch pieces)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Chopped green onion
- sesame seeds
We served ours with brown rice.
Step 1: Prepare rice and blanch broccoli
Step 2: Mix water and cornstarch, then add garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes.
Step 3: In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch, salt and pepper together until combined. Add chicken and already blanched broccoli and toss until coated.
Step 4: Heat a large nonstick skillet with vegetable oil. Shake excess coating off the chicken and cook in batches until golden, 4-6 minutes.
Step 5: Add the sauce mixture and cook until the sauce has thickened.
Serve with rice and top with garnish!
