Ingredients

2
tablespoons chili garlic sauce
2
tablespoons sugar
1
tablespoon rice vinegar
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons cornstarch
1
egg white
1
tablespoon soy sauce
10
oz boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces (about 3 chicken thighs)
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1
bunch broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces (about 3 cups)
6
green onions, thinly sliced on the bias (2/3 cup)
2
cups cooked white rice

Directions

  • 1 In small bowl, mix chili garlic sauce, sugar and vinegar; set aside. In large bowl, mix flour and cornstarch with whisk; set aside.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat egg white and soy sauce. Add chicken; toss to coat. Transfer chicken a few pieces at a time to bowl with flour mixture; toss to coat, then transfer to plate. Discard any leftover extra egg mixture and flour mixture.
  • 3 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken to skillet; cook 6 to 7 minutes, turning once, until chicken is crispy and browned on outside. If pieces of chicken stick together, break apart with spatula.
  • 4 Add broccoli to skillet; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until broccoli is softened and browned on edges, and chicken is no longer pink in center. Add chili garlic sauce mixture to pan; cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, stirring until mixture is thoroughly coated. Stir in green onions.
  • 5 Divide rice among 4 bowls. Divide chicken mixture over rice.
Tips  

Take a little extra time to separate the sticky battered pieces of chicken as they go in the pan.

Don’t have chicken thighs? Breasts work just as well in this recipe.
