Directions

2. Slice chicken into cubes. Season with pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Stir-fry chicken cubes until browned 3-5— work in batches if necessary. Transfer to the bowl with the sauce.

3. Add remaining oil to the same skillet; add broccoli, shallot, ginger, garlic and pepper strips. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Stir in remaining water and reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until broccoli is tender crisp, about 3 minutes. Stir in reserved sauce and chicken with any accumulated juices; stir-fry until chicken is heated through and sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
