BHG Delish Dish

Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry

  1. Hello again! This is Julia from the food blog (you can also ALWAYS find me on PINTEREST) with another recipe I made from the Better Homes and Gardens archives! This simple stir-fry of chicken and vegetables is not only delicious, super flavorful, and easy to make – it is also packed with protein (chicken) and fiber (vegetables). Chicken, broccoli, and yellow bell pepper stir-fried in Asian-flavored sauce make a great, healthy meal, low in fat, but high in protein and fiber. And, it takes only 30 minutes from start to finish:

There are three things that I really love about this recipe. First, the Asian-flavored sauce is amazing! It gives flavor to everything: chicken, broccoli, bell peppers. The sauce is also super easy to make. Just mix together water, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, cornstarch, ginger, and sesame oil. This combination of ingredients creates a really flavorful, well-balanced Asian-style sauce. The second thing I really love is that this recipe uses lots of vegetables that don’t taste bland at all, quite the opposite, you’ll be craving for more. Thirdly, thanks to all the protein (chicken) and the fiber (broccoli and bell peppers), this meal will keep you full and satisfied for many hours!

A simple Asian-style sauce uses just a few simple ingredients, like these:

The recipe takes only 30 minutes from start to finish and you will need only one cooking pan:

And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:

- I used 1/4 teaspoon of dry ginger instead of 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger – worked great!

- Mix the cornstarch with a small amount of cold water until it has the consistency of cream. Only then add this cornstarch mixture to the rest of the liquid ingredients. This will help avoid lumps.

- You might have to add extra water at the end of cooking, if the sauce is too thick.

I hope you’ll like this dish as much as I enjoyed it – Julia from

  1. Wow, ngon ngon wa.

  2. Seems very healthy and easy dish.
    I can’t find hoisin sauce in my area. Could I use oyster sauce instead?

  3. Gabriel, oyster sauce won’t really work, because Hoisin sauce has a very different flavor. Oyster sauce will be too strong for this recipe.
