This is why the use of oil in preparing Hanukkah food is important. Based on archaeological evidence, the oil of the Hanukkah miracle was olive oil. In ancient Israel, olive oil was used for lighting lamps, for religious rituals and for cooking. However, because of its low-smoking point, olive oil is rarely used to fry traditional Hanukkah specialties but vegetable oil and peanut oil are viable substitutes.
Soy Vay, not only is it possible, it’s good – really good.
- 1 tbsp. peanut oil, divided
- 1½ tsp. sesame oil
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cubed
- 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- ¼-½ tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1 large bunch of broccoli, cut into florets
- 6 tbsp. chicken broth, divided
- ½ cup of Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
Heat about half of the peanut oil and the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
Add the chicken pieces to the pan and sauté until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining oil to the pan and then add the garlic sautéeing until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the red pepper flakes and broccoli florets to the pan and stir to combine, then pour in about half of the chicken broth which will steam and boil quickly.
