Chinese food cooking at home is easy, and this recipe is a great way to start exploring Chinese Cooking at home. Empress Chicken & Broccoli is a spicy stir fry that will wake up your taste buds.
In small bowl, mix together the Lo Mein sauce, chili garlic sauce, sugar and cornstarch and set aside.
In large wok or pan with lid, heat 1 tablespoon of oil on high. Add the broccoli and toss cooking on high for about 1 minute. Be sure to keep it moving to prevent the broccoli from burning. Add the 1/4 cup of water, toss, cover and cook for 1 minute or until broccoli is bright green. Remove from pan and set aside.
Alternatively, you can optionally choose to steam or par-boil your broccoli.
Wipe pan out with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and heat on high. Add in the velvet chicken and cook on high until the chicken is fully cooked (about 2-3 minutes).
Add to the chicken the sauce and broccoli. Toss to coat and cook on high until bubbly (this is about 1-2 minutes). Remove from heat and serve over white rice.
