Stir-fry! Broccoli, Brussels & Shitake Chicken


Here’s an easy Asian stir-fry recipe that you can whip up in less than 30 minutes. Great for lunch or dinner, this tasty dish combines broccoli, brussels sprouts, shitake mushrooms and chicken. Easy peasy!

Estimated Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients (serves 3):

  • Chicken: 1 breast, chopped
  • Brussels Sprouts: 12 brussels sprouts, halved
  • Broccoli: 1/2 head, chopped
  • Shitake Mushrooms: 1 cup
  • Open Nature Sesame Ginger Dressing (or any conventional teriyaki marinade): 4 tbsp
  • Sesame Seeds: 1 tbsp
  • Oil Spray: 2 sprays
  • Water: 1/8 cup
  • Salt: 1 dash
  • Pepper: 1 dash

Start by slicing the raw chicken breast into small pieces. Spray a large wok or skillet with the oil spray and heat up the pan on medium/high heat. Toss the chicken pieces into the pan, sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper, and cook the chicken until it’s seared and sealed.  Add in 1/8 cup of water with the brussels sprouts and reduce heat to medium. Cover for about 5 minutes. Add in the remaining broccoli and and shitake mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes. Once the broccoli is half way cooked, add in the the sesame nature ginger dressing. If you don’t have that dressing on hand, feel free to use any standard teriyaki marinade. When all the veggies seemed cooked, sprinkle the dish with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
