I used to maintain a website called "Guide to Living Alone" which featured some good recipes for one person. This recipe is one I put together for my friend Ellen, because it was one of her favorite sidedishes at a Chinese restaurant we frequented. The little triangular foil packets of chicken were such a treat! If you double/triple/etc the recipe, it can also make good appetizers for a party, or even take-alongs for a picnic or potluck.
- 5 ounces can cooked white chicken meat
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chinese hoisin sauce
- 1 dash sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon soy sauce
- 2 -3 dashes sesame oil, to taste
- 1⁄4 teaspoon roasted minced garlic (or garlic powder to taste)
- 2 teaspoons chopped green onions
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon minced water chestnut (optional)
- Mix together all ingredients.
- Put into covered dish and put in fridge to marinate for one hour.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Wrap tablespoon sized portions in pieces of aluminum foil, either in triangular shapes or about 2 1/2-inch square.
- Bake in 350 degree F oven for about 10 minutes.
- Serve along with stirfry and rice, or as an appetizer.
My son is high functioning autistic and is a picky eater. He just loves this recipe. We used raw chicken instead of canned chicken and parsley instead of cilantro only because parsley was what I had in refrig, but it came out just great. In fact , he made it himself the other night. He served it with Natures Promise chicken and veg pot stickers. JUST GREAT Thank you for sharing.
