Chinese Chicken and Vegetables

My favorite dish is the chicken and broccoli, so I decided to revamp it with a bunch of vegetables because I didn’t have enough broccoli for all of us 😦  It was SO good, and my parents devoured it quickly!

There are two parts to this recipe. One is for the chicken marinade, and the other is for the actual sauce.

Ingredients

Marinade:
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Sauce:
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon rice vinegar*
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 chicken breasts, sliced thinly
1 bag Sechuan style vegetables

*I didn’t have rice vinegar, so I substituted it with a little less than 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and mixed it with some sugar.

Directions

1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together, and marinade the chicken while preparing the sauce (I marinated it for about an hour).
2. Steam vegetables, either in a steamer or in the microwave.

3. Cook chicken with its marinade for a few minutes, then add the sauce.  Once it is thoroughly cooked, add in vegetables.  Cook and mix for a few more minutes until your veggies are soft and covered with sauce.

This was a pretty simple dish, it just took some time to prepare everything.  Hope you enjoy!
