  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon of sesame oil
  • ½ tablespoon of red pepper flakes, plus more if you desire to taste more heat
  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil plus more if you desire or require
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless, chicken thighs, already cut into ½ inch pieces ready for stir frying
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh gingerroot, already peeled and chopped
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched on hot water with a teaspoon of soda (soda keeps the color green nicely on veggies)

  • To make the sauce for the stir fry, combine in a small bowl, whisking together the soy sauce, the orange juice, the rice wine vinegar, the light brown sugar, the sesame oil the red pepper flakes and the cornstarch.  Stir them well until they are smooth and reserve.
  • To start your stir frying, heat your wok or a large skillet over medium high heat on your America stove.  Once heated, pour in 1 tablespoon of peanut oil into the wok and wait till it gets hot enough to start frying.  
  • When the peanut oil starts to shimmer, add about a half of the chicken pieces into the wok and stir fry them until the chicken is fully cooked through, approximately 3 to 4 minutes per batch.  Transfer the cooked chicken to a clean plate and then repeat the process for the next batch of the chicken pieces.  Once done, set them aside for the finale.
  • After the chicken is done, add 1 more tablespoon of peanut oil into the wok to coat especially the bottom of the wok.  Then once hot, you can add the ginger, the garlic and the green onions first then the red chili pepper flakes according to your taste, and saute them until they are fragrant for another 1 minute.  
  • Then add the broccoli florets (already blanched) to the wok and stir fry for about 15 seconds to heat them up.  Then continue to add the chicken pieces back to the wok.  
  • Stir fry them to warm them up and then pour the reserved stir fry sauce your have prepared earlier to the wok.  Stir fry them continuously until the sauce thickens and starts to bubble, maybe about 45 seconds.  
  • You are done and transfer them to a clean platter and serve them over white steam cooked rice while they are hot.
