Chicken Broccoli and Mushroom Stir Fry


Chicken Broccoli and Mushroom Stir Fry is one of my favorite midweek dinners. I make this when I get a craving for Chinese food. Have you ever ordered takeout and when you tasted it, realised that you could have made a much nicer dish yourself? Me too! And that’s when I decided to develop this stir fry recipe. The sauce tastes better than my local Chinese restaurant!

Start by coating the chicken in flour and stir frying it in a wok until it is evenly browned. Make a sauce by whisking flour, chicken stock or broth, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sesame oil in a bowl. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a plate and cook the broccoli and mushrooms in the same wok. Add the sauce and bring it to a boil. Once it thickens, add the chicken and heat through. Serve with rice and enjoy!

To make my Chicken Broccoli and Mushroom Stir Fry, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Chicken Broccoli and Mushroom Stir Fry


Prepare the chicken breast


Pat the chopped 1lb of chicken breast dry with paper towels. Toss the chicken pieces with ¼ cup of flour until each piece is evenly coated. Place the coated chicken on a plate and save the remaining flour for the sauce).


Make the sauce


Pour 1 cup of chicken stock into the bowl with the flour. Add ¼ cup of honey, ¼ cup of soy sauce, ½ tbsp of grated ginger, 2 cloves of grated garlic and 2 tsp of sesame oil to the bowl and whisk until very smooth.


Cook chicken


Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large wok or skillet and heat over medium-high. Add chicken pieces and spread them out in an even layer. Cook the chicken for a minute before stirring, then stir fry for 5 minutes until evenly browned. Remove the chicken from the wok and set aside.


Cook veggies


Add 1 more tablespoon of oil to the same wok or skillet and heat. Add 1 ¼ lb of broccoli florets, 1 small sliced onion and ¾ lb of sliced mushrooms to the hot oil and stir fry for 4 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and the broccoli is crisp-tender.


Add sauce to the vegetables


Whisk the sauce once more in the bowl before pouring it over the vegetables. Bring the sauce to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.


Simmer and add chicken


Simmer the sauce for 2 minutes until it thickens. Then add the chicken and cook for about 30 seconds until heated through. Taste and season with salt if necessary.

When I first cooked this I thought it would taste kinda bland and added some soy sauce on the top too.

Best mushroom and broccoli with chicken stir fry I've ever made, can't wait to share it with friends.

Didn't add the honey but that didn't change the taste much, it was pretty good.

Had it cold for lunch at work yesterday and really happy with how it turned out.

Cooked this with some cheesy garlic bread on the side super filling and scrumptious.

Chicken wasn't too flavorful sadly but it was alright though I think I'll be sticking with the broccoli cheddar stuffed potatoes.
