Happy August!

Today’s recipe was made up on a whim Monday night with whatever I had on hand in the fridge. The best part about this dish is that it took less than 20 minutes to make and didn’t require much clean up!


Serves 2

Preheat a skillet to medium heat. Add 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil and ½ tsp. sesame oil (for flavoring).

Add two chopped skinless, boneless chicken breasts to the pan. While the chicken is browning, chop one clove of garlic (and 1 tsp. of fresh ginger if you wish) and two heads of broccoli.

When the chicken has browned (about 4 minutes) add the garlic (and ginger if you wish) to the pan. Stir to combine with the chicken.

After 2 more minutes, add the chopped broccoli, 2 tsp. soy sauce, 1 tsp. rice wine vinegar and another ½ tsp. sesame oil to the pan. Stir to combine. Turn the heat down to medium-low and cover. Cook for 3-4 minutes more.

Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve over rice or soba noodles.

Bon Appetit!
