Chinese Stir-fry Chicken


This Chinese Stir-fry Chicken is loaded with tasty ingredients and a delicious sweet and salty sauce. Packed with juicy chicken chunks and bright green broccoli florets, swimming in a sticky soy and honey sauce.

I add chili paste for a kick of heat and of course my favorite ingredient, garlic. I was wondering the other day if I’ve ever managed to make a savory recipe without garlic! I use chicken thighs instead of breasts as I think it’s easier to keep it moist and succulent when you cook it, but you can also use chicken breasts if that’s what you have at home.

So, how to cook Chinese Stir-fry Chicken Recipe?

Steps to make Chinese Stir-fry Chicken


Cook the onion and garlic


Heat half a tablespoon of the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute. Push the onion and garlic to the edges of the pan.


Cook the chicken


Add the rest of the oil to the center of the pan and let it heat, before adding the chicken and spreading evenly across the pan. Sprinkle with the cornstarch and leave to cook, untouched, for a couple of minutes. Once browned, flip the chicken pieces over and cook for another minute to brown the other sides.


Make the sauce


Meanwhile, combine the honey, soy sauce and chili paste together in a bowl and then pour into the pan. Stir everything together until well coated.


Add the broccoli


Toss the broccoli into the pan and cover with a lid, leaving to cook for 2 minutes.


Thicken the sauce


Give everything a good stir, ensuring there is no sauce stuck to the bottom of the pan. Simmer for about a minute, stirring regularly, until the sauce has thickened slightly.


Serving Chinese-Style Stir-fry


Serve the stir-fry with a side of steaming rice and spoon the sauce over the top to give everything a good coating.
