Easy to make. Can serve over rice, but we eat it without rice or anything else. Spice sizes are estimates -- I was just throwing them in while cooking. Easy to make.

    Chicken Breast, no skin, 1 lbs., cut into chunks
    Broccoli florets, fresh, 3 cup
    Sesame Oil, 2 tbsp
    Chicken Broth, .5 cup
    Corn Starch, 1 tbsp

Add bamboo, water chestnuts, broccoli and hoisin sauce. Mix well and continue to stir fry. Mix the corn starch and chicken broth. Add cornstarch mixture to chicken and vegetables.

  • This was delicious!! I'll definitely be making it again many times. I added matchstick carrots and sliced onions, but other than that followed the recipe exactly as written. Great idea to add seasoning directly to the broccoli first. It's quite spicy, so cut down on red pepper if you prefer milder. - 4/25/14

  • YUM! I made this with carrots in place of the water chestnuts. This was the first recipe I've made on this plan & am sure I will be making many more! - 7/11/12

  • Made this the other night and it was delicious! A little too spicy though, I may reduce the crushed red peppers by half next time, and then just spice it up with Sriracha if it needs more of kick.
    My grocery store didn't have water chestnuts or bamboo shoots, so I just threw in some bean sprouts.

  • Loved this, I added more veggies ( carrots, mushrooms, onions and celery) and omitted the hot pepper flakes. I really like the ginger,it's more than I have used in the past. - 1/28/11
