Chicken Brocoli Stir Fry


Recently at our local grocery store, they had the chicken breast bone in on sale. To save money on our groceries , I usually stock up ( when space is available) on meats. You can batch cook the chicken breast as well for several meals, saving you time too. I fillet and cut my own chicken , saving the bones for Homemade chicken broth. I freeze that too! You can make this meal under $5 when you use sale meat and veggies (  I bought mine for .99 / lb , the frozen broccoli was bought as a stock up when it was .25 at target with coupons added on sale price ) . The rest of the ingredients are already in my pantry.




Ingredients:

1 lb chicken breast, cut into big chunks or strips if you like
1 package 10 oz frozen broccoli
1 1/2 cups hoisin sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves, minced garlic
half of medium size onion, chopped.
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp grated ginger.


Directions:


Using a stir fry wok , heat olive oil. Saute onion until transparent, followed by the minced garlic. Saute until golden brown.


Saute the chicken with the garlic and onion for a few minutes, Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Meanwhile , in a separate bowl .. combine your sesame oil , honey , hoisin sauce , grated ginger. Add about 1/4 tsp of pepper. Mix thoroughly.


Put the frozen broccoli in your wok together with the sauteed chicken, Cook until it is bright green. We dont want a mushy vegetables right?


Pour the sauce in the wok, making sure all the chicken and broccoli are all coated. 


Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Serve with rice.
