What is Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry?

Stir frying is a method of cooking in Chinese cuisine where the food is cooked with less oil, on high heat, while constantly being stirred so that the food doesn't lose its juices and also remains crispy while being fully cooked. This recipe involves a crispy fried chicken and some juicy broccoli florets to make it an all rounded balanced dish in a sticky, sweet and spicy sauce.
