1 1/2 to 2 lbs chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into small pieces
1 t minced garlic

1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper

1 T olive oil or avocado oil

Stir the chicken pieces, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes together in a bowl. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Sauté the chicken until it is cooked through, about 7-8 minutes. Remove the chicken and set it aside.
Mix together the sauce ingredients; soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch in a small bowl.
In the same skillet, add the broccoli and the chicken broth or water. Cook about 5 minutes until it’s bright green and slightly tender. Stir the chicken back in and add the sauce. Top with the garnishes and serve with your choice of rice.
