Chicken and Broccoli

This recipe is super quick and easy, but ends up tasting like take out Chinese. We love it at our house!

Chicken and Broccoli

1 lb Chicken tenders
1/4 c soy sause
2 T sugar
1/4 c apple juice
2 T cornstarch
1 c water
2 c fresh broccoli florets
4 T vegetable or olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp sesame oil

Cut chicken into small cubes; set aside. Combine soy sauce, sugar, juice, cornstarch, and water in a small bowl; set aside. In a large skillet, stir-fry broccoli in 2 T oil for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Do not overcook. Place broccoli in another dish. Pour remaining oil in the same skillet and heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until well browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, not more than 1 minute. Pour soy sauce mixture over meat and cook until slightly thickened. Stir in sesame oil. Remove from heat. Stir in broccoli. Serve over hot steamed rice.
