Made this a few nights ago. I was surprised by how quick it was, especially as I was using vegetarian chicken fillets which start off frozen. The ingredients worked so well together. My partner wasn't as big of a fan, but that's mostly because of a hatred of broccoli. Goes well with some plain noodles. The sauce really is so delicious and is most likely going to become one of my staple East Asian sauces.

Bloody Lovely!!!! We dry fried the chicken instead of grilling, and used the remaining sauce in the pan at the end of cooking, rather than pouring over the broccoli, which seemed to work quite well. In the absence of anything else, served with some microwave egg rice (I know), and even that didn't upset a great quick mid week meal
