This Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry is made from scratch and tastes like it came from your favorite Chinese restaurant. It makes a lot more for a lot less money!
Oh hi! It’s Mandy from Mandy’s Recipe Box here. Anyone else about sick of the heat of summer? I am. But I am not ready for the winter that will soon follow. Is it too much to ask for some constant 70 degree weather? I mean really. Idaho is known for hot summers and cold winters. It’s like Utah in that way. The joke is always that if you’re sick of the weather, just wait 5 minutes. Because it’ll change. But right now it’s just hotttt and dry and windy. All miserable. So you know I ain’t about to turn my oven on just to feed my people. Sorry family, love you though!
This Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry is a skillet meal that is full of broccoli, mushrooms and chicken all in a homemade sauce that is just awesome. You can eat it over rice or on it’s own. My family ate it up and I barely had any leftovers. Just enough for me to have some for lunch the next day. It’s way cheaper than ordering it from a restaurant, I’ll tell you that. And since I live about 60 miles from the nearest Chinese restaurant, this recipe is a life saver!
- 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup flour
- 8 oz chicken broth
- 1/8 cup honey

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.
Place flour into a large bowl and add the chicken. Stir to coat.
Heat 2 Tbsp oil over medium high heat and add chicken. Save the remaining flour in the bowl for the sauce.
While chicken cooks, make the sauce. Add the chicken broth, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sesame oil to the flour in the bowl. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
When chicken is cooked, remove to a plate and add the remaining 2 Tbsp oil to the skillet. Add the broccoli, onion and mushrooms and cook until veggies are tender.
Add the sauce and stir to coat veggies. Lower heat and let cook until sauce is thickened. Add the chicken and stir to reheat the chicken.
