  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ Tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced or ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 green onion thinly sliced
  • Stir-Fry:
  • 6 Tbsp vegetable or peanut oil divided [more if needed]
  • 4 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 green onion thinly sliced, white only
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced or ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 3 clove garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • ¼ cup hoison sauce [more if desired]
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

  • Slice the chicken breasts into strips. Whisk together the soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, minced garlic, ginger and sesame oil until the cornstarch has dissolved. Mix-in the sliced green onion.
  • Place into a plastic storage bag, pour the marinade over chicken. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
