Chicken Stir-Fry

In my home, one of our go-to dishes for Chinese takeout is chicken and broccoli. It’s so flavorful and never dry! The secret to the super tender meat is velveting, the technique of cooking marinated proteins briefly in hot oil. I wanted to replicate the same flavors and textures at home in a budget-friendly way. With just a few fresh vegetables, lots of pantry condiments and only one chicken breast, this recipe will serve four. If you have any leftovers or are meal planning, the velveting technique ensures that the chicken will remain succulent even when reheated.
