Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. In a small pot, combine 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings) and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Mince or grate garlic. Peel and mince ginger until you have 1 TBSP (2 TBSP for 4). Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.


Once water is boiling, add rice to pot. Cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve. Meanwhile, toss broccoli on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until tender and crisped, 15-20 minutes.


Meanwhile, pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, 5-7 minutes per side (it’ll cook through in the next step). Turn off heat; remove from pan and set aside. Wipe out pan.


While chicken cooks, in a small bowl, whisk together ¼ cup water (⅓ cup water for 4 servings), cornstarch, honey, and soy sauce until very smooth. Heat a large drizzle of oil in pan used for chicken over medium-low heat. Add garlic, ginger, and scallion whites. Cook, stirring, until fragrant and slightly softened, 30 seconds to 1 minute.


Pour half the vinegar (use all for 4 servings) into pan and simmer until almost evaporated. Stir in sauce and bring to a boil. Let bubble until thickened, 30 seconds to 1 minute (1-2 minutes for 4). Stir in 1 tsp sesame oil (2 tsp for 4). Return chicken to pan and reduce heat to medium low; turn to coat in sauce. Continue cooking until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, 2-3 minutes. TIP: If sauce is too thick, stir in a splash of water.


Fluff rice with a fork and season with salt. Stir in 1 tsp remaining sesame oil (use all remaining sesame oil for 4 servings), then divide between plates. Top with chicken and add broccoli to the side. Spoon any remaining sauce over chicken. Garnish with scallion greens and sesame seeds.
