Heat up the oil in a saucepan. Cook finely chopped shallots on it for about 2 minutes, then add the de-seeded and minced chili and chopped garlic. Fry them for another 4 minutes until soft.
Take the onion, pepper, and garlic out of the oil and add them to the broccoli. Also put chopped chicken, and olives in a bowl and mix.
Pour the soy sauce into the saucepan with the oil where the onions, peppers, and garlic were fried. Warm the mixture over medium heat and pour over the salad. The finished dish can be served warm or cold. Real French Fries: Cook Real French Potatoes
