Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup no-sugar-added plum preserves
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup Tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • 1 inch ginger, cut into matchsticks or grated
  • 2 bunches broccolini, ends trimmed and cut into 2-3 inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons high-temperature cooking oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 red field pepper, quartered and sliced
  • 1 onion, quartered and sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or chopped
  • Szechuan or black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • Cooked brown or white rice, to serve

Preparation

In a small pot, combine the preserves, stock, Tamari and ginger, and bring to a low simmer. 

In another pot, parboil the broccolini for 3 minutes in boiling, salted water then cool in an ice bath and drain; pat dry. 

Heat a large, round-bottom pan or wok over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil, brown chicken and remove to plate. Add more oil and stir-fry the drained broccolini, peppers and onions for 2-3 minutes; add garlic, pepper, sauce and chicken back to the pan, and toss to combine. Finish with sesame oil and seeds. Serve over white or brown rice.
