- Marinate the boneless- chicken (breast) with the ingredients specified above. Set aside for 15 minutes.
- Either Bake the chicken pieces at 200° for 8 minutes OR pressure cooker to 1 whistle. (This way, the marinated chicken pieces will release water which is going to be used as Chicken Broth to make our Stir-Fry Sauce in the next step)
- Pour the Chicken Broth -(the water separated from the marinated chicken pieces while baking) in a bowl, add soy sauce, vinegar, sesame powder, black pepper crushed, honey, ginger-garlic grated and corn-starch. Whisk them all together. Stir-Fry Sauce is ready.
- Slice onions, broccoli and mushroom accordingly and set aside for later.
How To Cook:
Step 1: In a heated pan, pour 3 tbsp olive oil, add the sliced onions, fry 2-3 minutes on medium heat till translucent.
Step 2: Add Broccoli , fry 7-8 minutes over medium flame, once the broccoli is cooked, add mushrooms. Fry 7 minutes over medium flame. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp salt. Sauté over low-medium flame until its light brown.
Step 3: Pour in the Stir-Fry sauce as prepared earlier, (stir the sauce before pouring in to the pan). Cook the sauce 5 minutes over medium flame. Cover & Cook 5 minutes on medium-low flame.
Step 4: Add in the baked chicken pieces. Mix with the sauce. Adjust the consistency of the gravy as per your desire. (if you want the gravy consistency to be dried, just simmer for few more minutes before turning off the flame)
