Hoisin Chicken Stir-Fry

Scott Phillips

Servings: four.

Using store-bought hoisin sauce makes this chicken stir-fry easy and fast. You can substitute any quick-cooking vegetable, such as mushrooms, thinly sliced carrots, or broccoli florets. Round out the meal with Steamed White Rice.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs. vegetable or peanut oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 oz. snow peas, trimmed
  • Crushed red chile flakes
  • 1 to 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger (optional)
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • 1/3 cup dry-roasted peanuts or cashews

Preparation

  • Heat 2 Tbs. of the oil in a large skillet over mediumhigh heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 to 3 min. Add the bell pepper and cook until both the pepper and onion are browned around the edges, 4 to 6 min. Remove the vegetables from the skillet; set aside. Pour the remaining 1 Tbs. oil in the skillet. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper, add it to the oil, and cook, stirring frequently, so that all sides brown, 2 to 3 min. Stir in the snow peas and sprinkle in some red chile flakes. Add the ginger, if using. Reduce the heat to medium low and stir in the hoisin sauce and water. Simmer for 1 min. to wilt the snow peas and finish cooking the chicken (don’t overcook it). Sprinkle with the peanuts or cashews and serve over rice.

    Very good recipe. Can suggest a replacement for fried cashew paste.?

    Good starting point. Very easy and quick.I used thin fresh asparagus and snow peas for the veggies. Also added green onion when cooked. Rather than chicken I used a Chinese barbecue pork tenderloin, sliced and cubed, addition at the end to heat through. Very good.
