Chinese Chicken and Broccoli



  • 700g broccoli florets
  • 2 tbsp each soy sauce and hoisin sauce
  • ½ lime, juice only
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp chilli flake
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • 200ml cold chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 400g chicken thigh fillets, cut into 3cm chunks
  • 100g sliced spring onions
  • 2 chopped garlic cloves
  • 6cm piece of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Steam the broccoli for 8 mins. Whisk the soy, lime juice, hoisin, honey, cornflour, chilli, pepper and stock in a bowl, and set aside. Heat the sesame oil in a wok and sear the chicken - without moving - for 2 mins until browned. Stir fry for 3 more mins until cooked through, then transfer to a plate. Add all but 2 tbsp of spring onions to the wok with the ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 2 mins.
  • Reduce the heat and stir in the soy sauce mixture. Cook for 2 mins to thicken, then tip in the cooked chicken and broccoli and gently stir to coat. Serve with steamed rice, scattered with sesame seeds and the reserved spring onions.
