  1. I'd sear the chicken with garlic, ginger and scallions in peanut oil,, set aside, add veggies to wok with lid until steam, add chicken and "stir fry" for a moment. In a separate bowl (not to ruin your seasoned carbon steel wok with the sugar) mix in Worcestershire, Sriracha, and a tad of Honey.

  2. I cooked this today, and it was fantastic! My wife and I ate until we couldn't walk. The chicken had a texture like lobster, and delicious. Very clear instructions. Thank you very much.

  3. Thank you for such an amazing delicious and healthy recipe. I've never seen chicken and broccoli recipe like this one with the chicken cooked on water instead of oil. My family loves it every time I make it and it's so quick and easy to make. Thank you so so much ❤️

  4. Tess, I've been looking for this recipe for the longest, as no one on here discloses what to do with the chicken before you start frying it. Even professional Chinese chefs.
    Many years ago, I ate at one of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Brooklyn, where the owner in confidence disclosed to me that they marinated their chickens, in addition to other things, in egg whites and starch, making them super-tender and tasty.
    No one tells you on YouTube to use egg whites with starch and instead rushes to start frying.
    And you won't believe me, but I just had a skype session with a girl on the other side of the planet, who never ate Chinese before, let alone cooked it, and I chose to use this video to introduce her to Chinese cuisine.
    She got all of the ingredients and after she finished cooking and tasted it, she couldn't stop marveling just how GOOOOOOD it was and now she is now a "chicken broccoli convert".. :-))))
    Thank you for such a wonderful recipe and making 2 more people happy…

  5. I want to thank you for this recipe! I've made it many times since I found your easy to follow video over a year ago. My family and friends seem to love it and I love how I dont have to fry anything!
