This was truly yummy and I especially enjoyed the peppery orange sauce. Made mine in a non-stick wok and was able to cut the oil quite a bit. Also used arrowroot instead of cornstarch. As mentioned, the sauce was so good, I ended up dipping my side of steamed string beans in it. Next time i will save a pot by just stir-frying them in with the chicken and onions. Thank NC!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce with the wine and cornstarch. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over moderately high heat. Add the onion, ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 5 minutes. Add the poblano and crushed red pepper and continue stir-frying until the chicken is cooked through and the poblano softens, about 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate.
  3. Add the orange juice to the wok and boil until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Return the chicken to the wok, add the papaya and stir-fry until hot, about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and transfer to a platter. Garnish with the scallion and serve.
