Ingredients

  • Oil: Any high-smoke neutral oil like vegetable, canola & sunflower oil works!
  • Chicken breasts: Use skinless and boneless chicken. Both chicken breasts and chicken thighs work!
  • Garlic: Mincing the garlic will stop it from burning as easier while stir-frying! You can use a garlic press or microplane to do this.
  • Ginger: Mincing the ginger to the same as the garlic allows them to cook evenly.
  • Carrot: Cut the carrots into thin juliennes (small strips) to let them cook all the way through while stir-frying.
  • Broccoli: Cut the big broccoli florets into quarters or halves. This will help them cook at the same time as the other vegetables.
  • Red onion: I think red onions have the best complementary flavor, but you can swap them with shallots or yellow onions.
  • Soy sauce: Use a light soy sauce. The dark variation has sugar in it.
  • Sesame oil: Make sure not to add too much sesame oil, as it can be overpowering.
  • Fish sauce: Use the whole teaspoon; it’ll add a ton of flavor!
  • Lime: Lime adds a delicious freshness and lifts the other flavors with its acidity. It can be swapped with lemon or rice vinegar, but I recommend using lime!
  • Chili flakes: Use a dry chili flake that is spicy but not too spicy! I used bird-eye chilies, which are sometimes labeled Thai chilies.
