chicken-and-broccoli stir-fry... 30 minutes

the goods:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch strips
3 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 bunch broccoli, cut into small florets
cooked rice for serving (I used whole wheat)

Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, oyster sauce, cornstarch, and sesame oil.
In a wok or large skillet, heat vegetable oil over high. Add chicken and cook until browned, 10 minutes. Add ginger, garlic, scallions, and broccoli and cook, stirring frequently, until broccoli is bright green, 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water, scraping up browned bits with a wooden spoon. Stir in soy sauce mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened, 1 minute. Serve warm with rice.
