  • 1 pound (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 cup broccoli florets

  • In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and cornstarch. Add the chicken pieces and toss to coat. Let it marinate for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  • In the same pan, add the sliced onion, bell pepper, carrot, and broccoli florets. Stir-fry the vegetables for about 4-5 minutes until they are crisp-tender.
  • Return the cooked chicken to the pan with the vegetables. Stir everything together and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to heat the chicken through.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, garnish with chopped green onions or sesame seeds for added flavor and presentation.
  • Serve the chicken stir-fry hot over steamed rice or noodles.
