Spicy mayonnaise

  1. Add the ingredients to a small bowl, and stir to combine.

Chicken stir-fry with broccoli

  1. Heat the olive oil in a wok or large frying pan, over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir-fry for a few minutes, until the chicken turns golden brown.
  2. Add the broccoli and tamari soy sauce. Stir together for a couple of minutes until the broccoli is crisp, yet tender. Spoon into individual bowls, and serve with the spicy mayonnaise on the side.

Can I freeze and reheat this dish?

While stir-fries freeze just fine, mayo typically does not. That said, if you freeze this dish, we’d suggest using up the leftover sauce with another meal — and making a fresh batch when you go to reheat the stir-fry.

    Made this with a few edits and it was fantastic! All leftovers consumed immediately by my kids. I only had frozen chicken breasts, so used those instead of thighs, added more broccoli, subbed coconut aminos for the tamari (husband can’t do soy) and added a couple green onions and some grated ginger and sesame oil. I am sure this increased the carbs some, but still very reasonable. Skipped the mayo. Will definitely make again, very quick dish, very satisfying.

    Yay!! It must be good if kids go back for more :)

    I should say though, the “kids” are 20 and 22, not like little kids...

    I made this tonight and I was very pleased. I added 1/2 tsp of organic minced garlic and about 1tsp of freshly grated ginger root. I was happy to have found the Tamari soy sauce at Publix. I used the low sodium version . Tamari had a better flavor than regular soy sauce. I probably used about 1/4 cup because I didn't think 2tsp would do it. It was delicious. No leftovers! Also I used Siracha for the spicy mayonnaise. The recipe did not specify what type of hot sauce to use. What do y'all suggest? Thank you.

    You can simply use your favorite hot sauce. Just be sure it has clean ingredients!
    Many people like popular brands such as Tabasco or Cholula.
