Ingredients
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into small (1/2”) pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 10 ounces broccoli crowns, cut into small florets, stems thinly sliced on the diagonal
Instructions
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together chicken broth, honey, vinegar, pepper and ½ tsp. salt. Set sauce mixture aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, turmeric and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the chicken pieces and toss until coated with all the flour mixture.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the broccoli and stir fry until tender crisp and just starting to brown slightly, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Return skillet to heat, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, then add chicken. Cook, stirring, until the turmeric is fragrant, and the chicken is golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the sauce mixture to the chicken in the skillet. Continue to cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet, for about 2 minutes until sauce thickens. Add broccoli and continue cook and stir for another 2-3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
