How To Make PF Chang’s Ginger Chicken With Broccoli
Chicken breasts are sliced into thin strips before being marinated.
Mix up the very simple “marinade” for the chicken. The chicken will need to marinate in the refrigerator for for 3 hours. Plan ahead!
Make the simple Asian stir fry sauce for PF Chang’s ginger chicken, by blending ingredients together in a bowl… it’s so easy!
The chicken breast slices are drained, after marinating.
The chicken breast pieces are cooked in chicken broth until they are 2/3 of the way done. The chicken is then removed from the broth and drained on paper towels.
The broccoli florets are then cooked in the chicken broth.
Minced garlic, green onions, and ginger are cooked in oil in a large skillet. Boy does it smell good while they are cooking!
The Asian stir fry sauce is then added to the cooked green onions, garlic and ginger.
The marinated chicken pieces are added back into the skillet with the green onions and stir fry sauce. The chicken is cooked for several minutes until it is fully cooked through.
Mix up the cornstarch mixture that will help to thicken the stir fry sauce for PF Chang’s ginger chicken and broccoli.
Once it is fully mixed, add it into the skillet with the chicken and sauce. Stir until all the cornstarch slurry is fully blended with the stir fry sauce. The sauce will thicken as it cooks.
To Serve PF Chang’s Ginger Chicken with Broccoli

Arrange the cooked broccoli in a ring around the outside of a serving dish. The steaming hot ginger chicken and sauce is then piled into the middle. Serve this delicious dish up, and enjoy!

You'll love PF Chang's Ginger Chicken with Broccoli (a copycat recipe), with chicken breasts, broccoli, and an amazing Asian inspired stir fry sauce!
- 2 large eggs , beaten
- 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large boneless , skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 8 oz. fresh broccoli florets
- 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 Tablespoons minced , peeled fresh ginger
- 2 Tablespoons minced green onion (green and white parts)
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil (found in Asian section of most grocery stores)
- Steamed rice , for serving
- At least 3 hours ahead of serving time: Marinate the chicken: Combine the eggs, cornstarch, salt, pepper, and vegetable oil in a bowl. Add the chicken slices; mix well to coat. Cover the dish and refrigerate the chicken for at least 3 hours. When ready to use, drain the chicken well (I used a sieve-dump the chicken in it over a bowl to drain...don't rinse...just drain as much of the slimy egg mixture as you can off of the chicken).
- Combine the ingredients for the stir-fry sauce, cover and set aside until ready to use. Sauce can be made ahead.
- Place the 3 cups of chicken broth in a large skillet (or wok); bring to a rolling boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer. Add the well-drained pieces of marinated chicken to the broth; cook until chicken is almost done (about 3/4 of the way done - just a couple minutes). Before the chicken is cooked all the way through, remove the pieces from the pan using a slotted spoon, and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Keep the chicken warm.
- After removing the chicken, but while the broth is still simmering, add the broccoli florets. Cook these until crisp-tender (just a few minutes!). Once done, remove the broccoli with a slotted spoon and arrange it on a serving platter in a ring. Keep the broccoli warm. Once you have removed the broccoli from the pan, discard the broth. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel and put it back on the stove top.
- Heat the skillet again and add 3 TBSP vegetable oil. Once oil is hot, add the ginger, green onion, and garlic... saute for just a few seconds. Add in the stir-fry sauce and simmer for a few minutes.
- Add the chicken slices back into the sauce; cook all the way through, approximately 3-4 minutes. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup cornstarch with 1/2 cup water until smooth. Add this mixture to the chicken and sauce in the skillet. Stir in the sesame oil. Simmer for a minute or two while the sauce thickens.
- Arrange the broccoli into a ring shape around the perimeter of serving platter. Once the sauce has thickened and is hot, pour the stir-fry into the center of the broccoli ring. Serve with steamed rice. Enjoy!
Please take note that the long prep time is inactive prep time. The length of prep time includes 3 hours of marinade time for the chicken.
