Chicken with Brocolli and Portobello Mushroom

chicken with brocolli and mushroom

If you look closely, the Dads have been singing paeans to spring. As stated in my previous entry, [spring] does bring a lot of nature’s finest ingredients so we take advantage of this and cook what is best!

For this entry, I’d like to share another veggie and chicken recipe, which is what I consider a somewhat successful kitchen experiment. This combo recipe is not really new since it has appeared in previous blogs (e.g., the use of oyster sauce or sauteing broccoli) but the combination of all these ingredients into one dish is something I did for the first time.

For the meantime, try it out and in case you have suggestions re improving the recipe, please feel free to post a comment.


¼ chicken breast*, cut into bite pieces
3 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. black bean sauce
2 tbsp. sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1 pc. onion, chopped
2 broccoli heads, chopped into bite pieces
2 Portobello mushroom, sliced
2 tsp. rice flour

1. Prepare the following:
a. Marinate chicken in oyster sauce and sesame oil for an hour.
b. Blanche broccoli in boiling water for two to three minutes then drain. You can stop the cooking process by running it in cold water so the veggies remain green and crunchy. Set aside.
c. In a small bowl, whisk black bean sauce, oyster sauce, and water. Heat this in a saucepan for 2 minutes then slowly add rice flour, whisking the mixture to avoid lumps. Cool the mixture for five minutes.

2. Heat pan (medium heat) then sautee garlic and onions in sesame oil for two to three minutes.

3. Add marinated chicken, mix with the sautee mixture and cook for five minutes or until chicken is cook.

4. Add the mushrooms and let it simmer in medium heat for three to five minutes before adding the sauce mixture.

5. Sautee for about three minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken.

6. Finally, add broccoli and toss. Cook for about three minutes.
7. Serve with steam rice. Enjoy!

* You may substitute tofu for the chicken to make it a truly vegetarian meal. 🙂
