Cook rice

Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Peel, then mince or grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice, half the garlic and half the ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.

Prep and toast sesame seeds

While rice cooks, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add sesame seeds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate.


Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until golden, 1-2 min per side, then transfer to an unlined baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 12-14 min.**

Cook broccoli

While chicken roasts, heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add broccoli, remaining garlic and 3 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Transfer broccoli to a plate. Cover to keep warm.


Whisk together honey, soy sauce, cornstarch and 2/3 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Reheat the same pan. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Add honey mixture to the same pan. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min.


Rest chicken for 3-5 min, then thinly slice. Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in half the green onions. Divide rice between plates. Top with broccoli, chicken and sauce from the pan. Sprinkle sesame seeds and remaining green onions over top.
