General Tso’s Chicken with Broccoli


General Tso’s Chicken with Broccoli

What you’ll need: 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1” cubes 2 Tbsp cornstarch, plus 2 tsp 2 tsp peanut oil or vegetable oil 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 Tbsp minced ginger ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth 1 Tbsp lower sodium soy sauce 1 Tbsp hoisin sauce 1 Tbsp rice vinegar 1 Tbsp honey 1 Tbsp Sriracha 4 cups steamed broccoli florets, for serving Cooked brown rice, for serving

How to make it: 1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. On the baking sheet, toss the chicken chunks with 2 Tbsp of the cornstarch. Spread out the cubes and bake until they’re cooked through, about 12 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the oil, garlic, and ginger and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add the broth, soy sauce, hoisin, vinegar, honey, and Sriracha. Simmer until well combined, about 3 minutes. In a cup, whisk together the remaining 2 tsp cornstarch into 2 Tbsp water. Add that to the pan and heat until the mixture has thickened, about 30 seconds. 3. Add the cooked chicken to the pan with the sauce and toss together. Serve alongside the broccoli and over brown rice. Makes 4 servings
