Level of Difficulty:

We created a light garlicky gravy and then used it to flavor this Chinese classic. It's so easy and so good that it might just become a weekly staple.


· 2 tsp olive oil

· 1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces

· 1 tsp dried thyme, or 2 tbsp fresh minced thyme, or to taste

· 1/2 tsp table salt

· 1/4 tsp black pepper

· 3 medium garlic clove(s), minced, or more to taste

· 2 cup broccoli, florets

· 1 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided

· 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch

· 2 cup cooked brown rice, kept hot


· Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken on a plate and season with thyme, salt and pepper. Add garlic to skillet and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add chicken to skillet and cook until browned on all sides, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.

· Add broccoli to skillet, cover and cook 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of broth, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

· In a cup, dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup of broth; add to skillet. Simmer until mixture thickens, stirring constantly, about 1 minute; serve over rice. Yields about 1 cup of chicken and broccoli and 1/2 cup of rice per serving.
