  • 4 chicken thigh fillets cut into bite-size pieces
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 head broccoli broken into florets
  • 1/3 cup chicken bone broth
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca (or corn or potato) starch
  • generous pinch sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger grated
  • splash rice wine


  • In a wok or frying pan, boil about six cups of water with a generous amount of salt and ground pepper.
  • With the water boiling briskly, drop in the chicken pieces. Stir once to separate. Cook just until the chicken meat changes color. Scoop out and transfer to a plate.
  • Bring the water to a hard boil once more. Drop in the broccoli florets and cook for one minute. Scoop out and transfer to another plate.
  • Make the sauce by stirring together the broth, starch and sugar.
  • Clean out the wok or frying pan. Pour in the sesame seed oil and heat. Saute the garlic and ginger with a bit of salt and pepper until fragrant and lightly browned.
  • Turn up the heat. Add the chicken and broccoli to the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir fry for a minute.
  • Pour in the sauce. Cook, stirring, until thick and clear. Taste and add more salt and pepper, as needed.
  • Serve the chicken broccoli stir fry immediately. You may want to garnish it with toasted sesame seeds.
