Chicken with Broccoli in Garlic Sauce

Chinese food is one of the favourites at my place since my kids like crunchy vegetables and I can feed them a large variety with this method of cooking. Its easy, its quick and its healthy.


Chicken breast                                           1 lbs cut into 1 inch cubes
Broccoli florets                                           2 cups
Garlic                                                         7-8 cloves
Oil                                                              4 tbsp
Cabbage                                                    1 cup (optional)
Salt                                                            1 1/2 tsp or to taste
Soy Sauce                                                1 tbsp
Chicken Stock                                            1 cup
Black pepper powder                                 1/2 tsp
Corn Flour                                                 1 tsp + 1 tbsp mixed in half cup of chicken stock
Sugar                                                         1 tsp


Grind the garlic cloves with quarter cup of water till a fine paste.
Put 1 tsp of corn flour on the chicken cubes.
Heat the oil on high in a wok large enough to hold all the ingredients.
Add the garlic and fry till there is no water left.
Put the chicken pieces in and start tossing and folding them in garlic.
Fry till chicken changes color completely.
Add the broccoli pieces in and cook for another minute.
Sprinkle salt and pepper and mix. Add cabbage cubes if using.
Add the cup of chicken stock. In the mean time add soy sauce to your corn flour and stock mix.
Once the stock comes to boil add in the corn flour mix while stirring constantly.
When it comes to a boil, taste for salt. Adjust, if required.
Serve immediately with noodles or rice.

You can steam broccoli florets for 2-3 minutes if you like them a bit soft.
