Chicken and broccoli stir-fry with oyster sauce

An easy stir-fry with chicken and broccoli glazed with oyster sauce and infused with ginger and roasted onion. A simple combination of light ingredients that will warm your plate and your mood :).

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 2 egg or rice noodle nests (optionally, can be replaced with simple boiled rice or - why not - even bread)
  • 200 g chicken breast
  • 1 broccoli head (350 g)
  • 1 thumb-sized ginger piece
  • half a onion
  • a little salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons oyster sauce (separated in 3 + 1)
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower kernel oil
Chop the chicken into cubes and break the broccoli into florets:

Heat the oil in a wok and place the meat in:

Season with salt and pepper to your taste (go easy with the salt, the oyster sauce will have some too). Turn the pieces once in a while until they look mostly done. Meanwhile, grate the ginger piece and finely chop the half of onion:

Add the onions and ginger to the wok:

When the meat looks mostly done and the onion softened, add 3 tablespoons of oyster sauce and stir to coat everything:

Leave for a few minutes (3-4) so the flavors infuse and add the broccoli and the other tablespoon of oyster sauce:

Mix and keep in the wok until the broccoli is softened to your taste (we don't like it too soft but with a little preserved crunch, but others may not, so you choose how much you want yours cooked. If you leave it less though, the meal will not only be ready faster but the vitamins will retain more of their quantities though :D). I would say 5 minutes minimum and 12 maximum. Take out, arrange next to the noodles on serving plates and dig in! :)
