Spicy Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 pinch salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 2 chicken breast halves, cut into thin strips
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red chile pepper, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped spring onion


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Mix flour, salt, and pepper together In a bowl. Toss the chicken strips with the flour until completely coated. Shake chicken pieces to remove excess flour.
  3. Fry chicken strips in the hot oil in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate, retaining oil in the skillet.
  4. Stir broccoli, chile pepper, and garlic together in the skillet. Reduce heat to low. Mix lime juice, soy sauce, and sugar together in a small bowl; pour over the broccoli mixture. Increase heat to medium-high. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook until the broccoli is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Return chicken to the skillet and stir. Cook until the chicken is reheated, about 1 minute. Sprinkle spring onions over the chicken and broccoli, stir, and immediately remove from heat.
