This chicken & broccoli comes together faster than the rice – so – if you have warm, cooked rice ready – you can serve this in ten minutes. None of the ingredients are particularly exotic but it is GENUINELY spicy. I like a lot of heat & this took it to my limit – so – if you are more timid in the spice department – cut the spicy things way back or drop them completely. I used – as always – Beyond Meat brand vegan chicken because it is absolutely the best on the market. It comes in 9 or 12 ounce packages.
10-Minute Spicy Vegan Sriracha Chicken & Broccoli Bowl
9 to 12 ounces vegan chicken – cubed
1 jalapeno – seeded & diced (optional)
1-5 dry red chilies – halved & seeded (VERY optional as these are VERY spicy – and if you use hem – do not chew & swallow them – but pick them out when you eat)
1/2 cup vegan hoisin sauce
1-2 TBS sriracha sauce
1-3 tsp crushed garlic (I used jarred)
1 TBS ginger (I used jarred)
Broccoli for 2 – fresh or frozen
Sliced scallions as garnish
Cooked rice for 2
Cook the rice. If you are using fresh broccoli – steam it a few minutes until it is done to your taste & set aside. If using frozen – cook it according to directions & set aside
Heat 1 TBS olive oil in a pan. Saute the jalapeno & red chili – if using them. When the jalapeno is softens (a few minutes) – add the garlic & ginger & saute 1 minute. Add the hoisin & sriracha and the chicken & heat the chicken through.
Assemble the bowls with the rice, broccoli & chicken & garnish with peanuts & scallions.
