Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe

Top up your family’s daily veggie intake with this delicious chicken and broccoli stir fry!

Tender broccoli, green beans and mushrooms with juicy chicken pieces in a savoury oyster and sesame sauce – oh yes please!

This meal was super easy to throw together and only took about half an hour. The kids loved it too, so we’ll be making this super dish again and again.

Here’s what you’ll need to get it on your table.

Two chicken breast fillets, one head of broccoli, some green beans and mushrooms, plus fresh ginger, garlic, chicken stock, sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce, peanut oil, corn flour and sugar.

I have a confession to make. I’ve never actually cooked with fresh ginger before. How beautiful it is!! I’ll definitely be using fresh ginger again.

Chop your veggies and add them to the pan with the garlic and ginger. Then remove and cook the chicken. Meanwhile, mix the sauces together in a jug and make up a cornflour slurry. Then add everything back to the pan and pour the sauce mix and the cornflour in and give everything a good stir as it thickens.
