Stir Fried Chicken with Broccoli Stems
You can separate the broccoli from the broccoli steams and make different dishes out of it. I used the broccoli for my microwave broccoli with butter and thyme and the stems I used in chicken stir-fry. Nothing is wasted right, I even saved the green leaves on the stem to stir-fry. I julienne it and if you are not an expert in taste, you might not even know what you are eating, unless the leaf gives you the hint.
I couldn't remember how I cooked this dish already, it had been left in the draft for too long and I couldn't refresh. Looking at the picture, I don't think it is just oyster sauce, I seriously couldn't recall. I know I lost a few good ones because of that. Even I have to refer back to my old recipes to cook a certain dish again. It was just too many over the years and I realized some of my old favorites I hardly cook it again. Do you have the same problem?
