Chinese Stir-Fry over Crunchy Slaw

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 10 mins

Adapted from a recipe I found in a magazine. You can serve rice on the side if you must but it really isn't needed this makes very generous, healthy portions. The nutrional numbers on this recipe will be a little off because you throw away the marinade but it is in the ingredients (hope that makes sense, lol)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and chili-garlic sauce.
  2. Divide in half, reserving half for sauce, other half is for marinade.
  3. Add Chicken to half the sauce, toss to coat and let stand 15 minutes.
  4. Whisk water and cornstarch into reserved sauce until smooth and set aside.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade.
  6. Heat oil in wok over high heat till hot.
  7. Add chicken and stir fry until almost cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  8. Add bell pepper, snow peas, green onions and garlic, stir fry for 1 minute.
  9. Add reserved sauce and stir fry another minute till the sauce has thickened and chicken is completely done.

WOW! This is my new favorite stir-fry! I just loved all the "crunch." Usually, I prefer sweeter stir-fries, but the sweetness of the cilantro mixed with the peanuts fooled me into thinking it was sweet! I also think the chili garlic sauce adds a sweet flavor. What a terrific way to eat broccoli slaw (I had 3 helpings!). I did not need the rice at all! Thanks Rifffaff, for posting- Roxygirl

Nice stir-fry! This was quick and easy to prepare and had a great flavor. We enjoyed it over the slaw. I saved some green tops of the green onions to sprinkle over the top with the cilantro and peanuts. Thanks for sharing!
