This recipe was inspired by "Venison Stir-Fry" by DiB's, but is probably nothing like it due to all of the variations I made. It is REALLY good! YOU MUST TRY IT.

Directions

  1. Combine broth, soy sauce, and concentrate in a small bowl.
  2. In another small bowl, mix cornstarch with a little water.
  3. Rinse chicken and cut into 1 1/4 inch cubes.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons oil on high in a large pan or wok.
  5. When oil is hot, add chicken and season with garlic salt; when cooked, set aside.
  6. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons more oil to the pan and throw in minced onion.
  7. Meanwhile, steam broccoli and green beans seperately in microwave, but make sure not to burn onions.
  8. When onions are lightly browned, add chicken; however, if vegetables are not steamed by the time onions are this color, remove pan/wok from heat with chicken and onions in it.
  9. After broccoli and green beans are partially (about 3/4 of the way) done, return pan to heat and add vegetables, stir-fry, adding rest of oil.
  10. Add soy sauce mixture, stir, then cornstarch mixture and cook quickly until slightly thicened, stirring all the while.
  11. Serve over rice.

My whole family loved this, which is rare! I found the slight orange tang a nice change. I made a few changes by doubling the ingredients for the sauce (cornstarch, soy sauce, chicken broth and OJ concentrate) and adding 3 carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally, 3 ribs of celery also sliced diagonally, and 1/4 cup chopped red pepper left over from another recipe. Left out the beans because I didn't have any fresh or frozen. I like to serve this over lentils for a lower carb meal.

My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. As a matter of fact, it has been voted as the best stir fry made to date. A definite keeper for us. I did change a couple things. I added some brown sugar to the sauce because I thought it was a little too salty. I didn't have any garlic flavored olive oil, so I just threw in some crushed garlic from a jar in with the olive oil. And I added a little more cornstarch because we like a thicker sauce. All in all though, a really good recipe. Thanks Little Bunny Fufu.

To serve two, I only cut back on the chicken (1 cup), broccoli (2 cups) and green beans (1 cup). We ate it all. Vey tasty.
