Chinese Chicken & Broccoli - Conscious Cooking

Chinese Chicken & Broccoli

Chinese Chicken & Broccoli

I made this Chinese chicken dish tonight and it was a hit! Highly recommend making it. It’s quick and easy to make, and perfect for a weeknight meal. No marinade needed. And as crazy as it sounds, there is no refined Chinese ingredients in the dish either. Only gluten-free tamari and local honey. I did serve with a little organic sriracha for me as I like a little spicy but the dish isn’t spicy. Children will enjoy this healthy Chinese-style meal.

I used organic, local chicken thighs. Chicken thighs are more flavourful and contain more minerals. I served the chicken and broccoli over basmati brown rice. It was delicious!

It’s a great meal for fall and winter, and makes great leftovers, if any.

Meal is gluten- and dairy-free.
