I like to call this one "Chinese take-out fake-out" because no one will know it isn't from a restaurant. Ridiculously easy there is no excuse not to cook this for your family any night of the week. It is all cooked in the oven, on the same pan so clean up is a breeze and you won't believe how delicious this simple recipe is.
You will need:
1.5 Lbs skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into bite sized pieces
1 bunch of broccoli (about 4 cups) florets, cut into bite sized pieces
3 tbsp. high quality Chinese oyster sauce, found in the ethnic food aisle in your grocery store, I buy the Lee Kum kee premium.
2 tbsp. Canola oil
1 tbsp. sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 425 degrees, on a sheet pan place broccoli on one side, and chicken on the other, drizzle on the oil, then using a clean hand toss the broccoli and chicken with oil till well coated. Place in oven and cook 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked and broccoli is tender, the broccoli and chicken will give off a bit of liquid,
pour on oyster sauce and coat all the chicken and broccoli. Pile on a plate and garnish with sesame seeds, serve with steamed rice or starch of choice. In the words of G. Love, "Yeah, its that easy" enjoy!
