      Chicken and Broccoli Stir-fry

      Serves:  4 servings

      1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 2 breasts), sliced against the grain
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, minced
      1 tablespoon soy sauce
      1 tablespoons sugar
      1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
      3/4 teaspoons kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
      1 tablespoon dry sherry
      1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
      About 1/3 cup chicken broth
      2 tablespoons vegetable oil
      3-4 cups broccoli, trimmed sliced stalks (about 1/4-inch thick) and medium florets (keep the 2 cuts separate)
      Serving suggestion: basmati rice with almonds

      Toss the chicken with half the garlic and ginger, the soy sauce, sugar, 1 teaspoon of the cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, the sherry, and the sesame oil in a bowl. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Mix the remaining cornstarch with the 1/3 cup broth.

      Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and heat. Add the broccoli stems, and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the florets and the remaining garlic, ginger, 2 tablespoons of water, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper, to taste. Stir-fry until the broccoli is bright green but still crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
      Get the skillet good and hot again, and then heat 1 more tablespoons oil. Add the chicken and stir-fry until the chicken loses its raw color and gets a little brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Return the broccoli to the pan and toss to heat through. Stir in the reserved cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil to thicken. Add more water if need to thin the sauce, if necessary. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if you like. Mound the stir-fry on a serving platter or divide among 4 plates; serve with rice.
