Winner, winner, chicken dinner

I originally found this recipe via Darius Williams. Last night I decided to make it with a few Queeny tweaks and with chicken.
Mongolian Chicken

1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 pounds of chicken breast cut up
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of pepper
1/4 cup of corn starch
1 pound of broccoli

2 cups of cooked brown rice

For the sauce:
1/2 teaspoons of ginger powder
2 tablespoon of garlic, bottled, minced
½ cup of soy sauce
½ cup of water
¾ cup of brown sugar

In a medium bowl, toss chicken with salt and pepper until well combined. Dredge in cornstarch and set aside for about 5 minutes so that the cornstarch can adhere to the steak strips. Put oil in wok. Once hot, fry 1/2 chicken until done. Drain, set aside, and repeat.

Meanwhile mix garlic, ginger, soy sauce, water, and brown sugar. Add chicken back to a pot and pour sauce over it. Reduce heat and allow sauce to thicken slightly. This should take about 2 minutes. Add broccoli and coat well.

Serve over rice.
