You will begin by whisking together your oyster sauce, rice-wine vinegar, ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, garlic and Sriracha in a small bowl.
You then take a little olive oil and put it in a skillet then heat over medium-high heat. To the skillet, add shrimp and cook. Stir it occasionally till it turns pink and then add your broccoli and cook together for about 3 minutes. You then stir in the soy sauce till it’s slightly thickened [usually for about 2 minutes].

>4 boneless-skinless chicken breasts which are pounded to even-thickness and then brined in saltwater
>3 tablespoons of melted butter
>4 cloves of peeled & minced garlic
>2 tablespoons of freshly-squeezed lemon-juice
>1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
>1 teaspoon of fresh thyme-leaves
>1/2 teaspoon of freshly-cracked black-pepper
You may also include extra-fresh thyme-sprigs and fresh lemon slices though these are optional.
The first step is filling a bowl with 1 quart of warm water and 1/4 cup of kosher-salt, then stirring so that much of the salt gets absorbed. You then add your chicken breasts and allow them to sit in this mixture for about 15 minutes.
Next, you remove your chicken breasts out of the brine and then rinse them using cold water before patting them dry by use of paper towels.
Heat your oven to a temperature of 450 degrees F and then using a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, garlic, lemon juice and thyme until the mixture is well-combined. Set it aside and then pour your melted butter mixture into another baking dish. Place your chicken breasts on top of this dish in an even layer and using a pastry brush, brush the butter-mixture all over your chicken breasts till completed coated. Sprinkle each chicken breast with pepper and pinch of salt or even lemon slices.
Bake for about 5 minutes before removing the pan from your oven and brushing the chicken with your butter mixture once more. Again, bake for about 5 minutes then remove the brush before baking for up to 8 minutes or till your chicken is ready. Once ready, remove the pan and brush it with butter, then cover the pan loosely using an aluminum foil. Lastly, allow your chicken sit for about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
