What are you trying to do to the chicken - casserole/stew, roast, poach, stirfry, etc? You don't have to use broth to cook chicken in at all but it depends on what you want. Tell us that and then I think you will be inundated with options!

Hi Sitara and welcome. Chicken Broth to cook chicken? For me that would be to make a broth to stew chicken in for a soup or to have cooked chicken for a recipe such as enchiladas. I would still add more seasoning to the broth. The seasonings would depend on the type of chicken dish/recipe that I am making.

Stir frying is a dry cooking method so you would not want to use the broth for that.

I wouldn't add a cream broth to a stirfry but you can add a bit of the normal stuff after the initial stirfrying part. Helps thin down the thicker sauces.

Hello Sitara and welcome! Stir frying takes us to another world, or at least another place in this world. It's a great place. Just a quick thing for you to stir fry chiciken.

Cut chicken into small thin strips. Dip into beaten egg whites and dredge in corn flour (corn starch). These go a few at a time into a hot - Hot! wok or frying pan with high sides. You will have about a tablespoon of oil in the wok and hot! I use peanut oil. Stir constantly and cook for about 3 - 5 minutes until chicken is golden brown and just cooked. Overcooking is easy and ruins the chicken - practice with small batchs. Be sure not to overcrowd the pan as hot and fast cooking is the key - overcrowding cools the oil making the result a soggy mess. Drain on paper towels and taste test. And then modify as needed. Add slight amount of oil as you go as needed. - Easy on the oil!

When you have stir fried up a nice table size batch of chicken you can return to the hot pan, add acouple tablesoons of soy sauce, and or a couple tablespoons sherry and a touch - 1 talespoon of oyster sauce plus some salt and pepper plus cashews if you like - about a third of a cup. Toss over high heat for about a minute and a half.

Hot and fast so be sure everything is premeasured - you have no time to stop and measure anything once you start.

Start with maybe a pound and a half of chicken breasts or thighs. This will make stir fry chicken - I didn't include veggies but once you have practiced just a bit I'll bet you want a simple cook book of stir fry recipes.

Just remember - thin strips, bite size, minimum oil, hot and fast, everything premeasured. Good luck.

Sitara, where do you live? Cream broth? I'm not familiar with that. I'm wondering if it's a sauce you add after you stir fry.
