    chicken breast, 2 breast, bone and skin removed, cut into thick strips
    extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp (or peanut oil)
    broccoli florets, 3 cups
    onions, minced, 0.67 cup (green onion, or sweet yellow)
    peas, 0.5 cup
    water chestnuts, 0.5 cup sliced
    bamboo shoots, 0.5 cup, sliced into thin strips
    garlic, 4 cloves, thinly sliced
    hoisin sauce, 1.5 tbsp
    low-sodium soy sauce, 1.5 tbsp
    chile paste, Thai or Chinese, 0.5 tsp
    ginger, ground, 0.5 tsp
    ground black pepper, black, 0.5 tsp
    chicken stock, home-prepared, 0.5 cups


Steam (or microwave) your broccoli until tender but firm. Set aside.

Prepare chicken breasts by de-boning and removing skin. Slice into long thing strips. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and saute the chopped onions, chicken strips, and garlic until the chicken is done. Add peas, water chestnuts, and bamboo shoots.

Stir in the hoisin sauce, chile paste, and soy sauce into the skillet. Add ginger, chile paste (I prefer a Thai chile paste), and black pepper to taste. Add the chicken stock, simmering and stirring until mixed well. Put in the steamed broccoli and coat well with the sauce.

Serve and enjoy!
