It’s Monday and it’s time for another reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club! Each month, a blogger is secretly assigned another blogger and chooses a recipe to make.

On reveal day (today for my group!), all our posts go up at the same time and we discover who was assigned our blog and which recipe she decided to try. Fun!

This month, I was assigned A Taste of Madness, run by the lovely Cathleen!

Cathleen is a Canadian living in Toronto, math teacher by day and baker extraordinaire by night.

Can I admit that I really hated math at school? I was just so bad at it! Cathleen, if you have students like me in your class…I am sorry! haha.

Now, A Taste of Madness is mostly a baking blog, with every sweet treat you could dream of (cookies, pies, tarts, and other delights) but this chicken and broccoli stir-fry caught my eye instantly.

You know me, I love quick and easy chicken recipes.

The original recipe actually calls for broccoli + snow peas but for some reasons, snow peas were nowhere to be found the day I was grocery shopping. So this chicken and broccoli stir-fry is just that – chicken and broccoli!

Would you believe that I had this healthy and nourishing chicken dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes (25 to be precise!)?

How awesome is that? Thanks, Cathleen for this chicken and broccoli stir-fry recipe!

You can make this Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry paleo by using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch.

Make this a low carb chicken dinner by omitting the honey and serving it with cauliflower rice instead of rice. Please note that broccoli is naturally high in carbs.

  • 1 cup chicken stock divided
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce tamari for gluten free
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger powder
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken breast 450 g, cut into bite-sized cubes

  • 4 cups broccoli cut into florets (about 1 large head)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch


  1. In a bowl, mix together 3/4 cup chicken stock, soy sauce, honey and ginger. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and minced garlic and cook, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink outside, about 2 minutes. (You don't want the chicken to cook all the way through).

  3. Pour chicken stock mixture into the pan, bring to a boil and cook until liquid has reduced to about half.

  4. Add broccoli and cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring often.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together remaining chicken stock (1/4 cup) and cornstarch. Pour into skillet, bring to a boil and cook until the sauce starts to thicken. Serve immediately. (side suggestion: rice or cauliflower rice)

Recipe Notes

  • MAKE IT PALEO: use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch.
  • MAKE IT LOW CARB: you can omit honey and serve this with cauliflower rice instead of rice. Please note that broccoli is naturally high in carbs.

  1. What a wonderfully looking dish to whip up during the week. Broccoli would have to be my favourite vegetable at the moment, so this dish is making me hungry! 🙂

    1. I love playing with numbers now (analytics and stuff like that) so we’re certainly making progress haha! Thanks again for this recipe Cathleen 🙂
