chinese style chicken stir fry

1 medium/large boneless skinless chicken breast (cut on the bias against the grain into 1/4" slices)
2 bunches broccolini (cut into pieces)
1 onion (chopped)
1/2 small cabbage (cut into 1/2" pieces)
4 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
6 asparagus stalks (cut on the bias into 1/2" pieces)
15-20 grape tomatoes (halved)
1 red pepper (halved, seeded, and cut into thin slices)
1 green pepper (halved, seeded, and cut into thin slices)
3 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. sake
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp. warm water
1 tbsp. corn starch
2 tbsp. canola oil

in a large frying pan heat the canola oil on medium high heat. when the oil is hot add in the onion and garlic, and cook for 2 mins. add in the sliced chicken breast and fry for about 4 mins. until chicken is no longer pink. then add in the broccolini, cabbage, asparagus, red and green peppers. cook for about 4 mins. add in the sake, chicken stock, and oyster sauce. cover and cook until the veggies are cooked (about 6-7 mins.)

while the veggies are cooking, in a small bowl add in the warm water and corn starch, and mix together. pour the corn starch mixture over the veggies and chicken. add in the grape tomatoes, and cook for another 2 mins.

serve hot over rice.

enjoy :)



  1. Great looking recipe you have here :)
    At first when I looked at the photo, it looks like you had some sort of Chinese greens there, but looking at your ingredients, it may just be broccoli instead! Looks delicious.

  2. hey there:

    actually it's broccolini, but you could use broccoli or even broccolette instead. i'm glad you enjoyed the recipe, and let me know what you think if you decide to make it.


  3. actually the picture earlier was from a july dish call "tobanjan pork with mixed vegetables"... this is the actual picture now. :)

  4. Hi Justin!

    Thanks for the update on the photo. It looks great!
