    tori.zombie's Note:

    The closest thing I've found to my favorite at August Moon, though I'm much too lazy to bread the chicken (which I haven't found any breading similar enough for my family's taste, unfortunately). All my family members who have tried this absolutely love it, even my mother-in-law who dislikes most Asian food! Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients. Please enjoy! :D

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl or Tupperware, dissolve chicken bouillon in hot water. Allow broth to cool to at least room temperature, then mix in cornstarch until well blended.
    2. 2
      Stir in sesame oil(opt), garlic powder, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, sherry, vinegar and red pepper flakes. Set aside in fridge.
    3. 3
      Heat oil or spray oil in wok or large skillet, brown chicken on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
    4. 4
      Add more oil, if necessary, stir fry green onions until softened.
    5. 5
      Remove sauce mixture from fridge, give it a stir if any ingredients have settled to the bottom. Pour into pan with green onions, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Cook to desired thickness. I like mine nicely thickened and with a dark amber color.
    6. 6
      Fold in cooked chicken, evenly coating. Serve with steamed or fried rice. Enjoy! (Note: You can beef this up a little bit by adding your favorite stir fried vegetable when cooking the green onions, I often use broccoli and stir fry to tender crisp.).

      I really liked this. Fast and easy to make with not too many dirty dishes (which is always a plus!). I cut back on the sugar in the sauce to 1/2 cup, which was plenty sweet for us. Might use even less sugar next time. This makes a lot of sauce; a half recipe of the sauce might be enough. I skipped the green onion but added a diced red bell pepper and broccoli. Will definitely make this again!

      This was awesome!! It's much better than any restaurant I've ever been to. I love the fact that's it's not breaded. The chicken was tender and juicy and the sauce was nicely thickened and a beautiful color. I used 1/2 Tblsp. of crushed red pepper but will double that next time. I like it hot. Next time I'll add the broccoli too. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
