Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli Recipe
Garlic, crushed red pepper, and chili paste add heat; hoisin sauce and ginger sweeten the deal. Great served over jasmine rice!

I made it twice, the first time following the recipe exactly, the second time with some slight adjustments that made it a 5. Definitely beware that this is the kind of spicy that will make you sweaty and give you the sniffles. Which I love, but some may want to slowly add and taste. Alterations: I put in a bit of agave syrup to give it a tad more of the sweet, used fresh ginger, put in more variety of vegetables (just anything that I had), doubled the sauce (I may triple next time, though), and sprinkled some fresh chopped cilantro on top at the end (as I frequently do with Asian dishes). Delicious! This is definitely an easy recipe with stuff you usually have on hand if you frequently cook Asian cuisine and very easy to play around with.
This is a great recipe, but if you can't handle hot, you will want to half the chili paste and maybe leave out crushed red peppers. I also took others advice & put my chicken in the frig. the night before with a little soy some fresh ginger & garlic. I used bell peppers, & no broccoli, I was out..also, used minced fresh garlic. Will make again! Thanks for sharing! :)
This is a very tasty recipe. I changed it a bit because we try to follow a low sodium diet. I kept the hoisin sauce, chili paste and soy sauce the same (1 tablespoon of each). I used way more chicken (3 freezer ready packages of Perdue Fit and Easy chicken which I believe is 6 breasts). I used two cups of chicken broth and I quadrupled the amount of ginger and red pepper flakes (2 teaspoons of ginger, 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes). I was scared my version of this recipe would be bland but it wasn't. The red pepper flakes give it the perfect amount of spice. It was very tasty and healthy.
Loved this! I used fresh broccoli and threw it in with everything else. I also added red bell pepper. To have a thicker sauce, I didn't use chicken stock. The flavor was great!
Very spicy, but delicious!
This is my first succesful chicken stir fry and so far my favourite. I didn't change much except for adding more broccoli and doubling the sauce to coat it all. The broccoli really absorbs the sauce and explodes with flavour so there's no need for any other vegetables.
As far as stir-frys go, this one is 5 stars. The sauce is perfect but we like alot so I always double. We also add other veggies like carrots and red pepper....This one is in the rotation!
