This is a very spicy chicken stir-fry, with a wonderfully tastey garlic overlay! With broccoli and carrots, it is very colorful and tastey. It is good served over rice or pasta.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cut the chicken lengthwise into 1/4-inch strips. Set chicken aside.
  2. Pour oil around the top of a preheated wok or skillet with sloped sides; heat at medium-high (375) for 2 minutes. Add chile pepper pods, and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes. Remove chile pepper pods from the wok; set aside. Add the reserved chicken, and stir-fry for 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from the wok; drain well, and set aside.
  3. Add the celery, water chestnuts, broccoli flowerets, carrot, garlic, and gingerroot to the wok, and stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add the reserved chile pepper pods, reserved chicken, and green onion to the wok. Combine wine and chili paste (if using); add to the wok and stir-fry until thoroughly heated. Serve over hot cooked rice or pasta.

Excellent dish! I used Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce instead of chili paste. (I will be making this again using Sriracha.) I added some baby corn and spinach to the veggies and served it over rice. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe, breezermom! ***Made for PRMR***

I have been wanting to learn to cook Chinese style foods. One of my favorite at the restaurant is Chicken in Hot Garlic Sauce. I found this and thought I would give it a try. It tasted great! I used some Thai Chili paste (it was all I could find) and rice wine vinegar (all I could find). It really warmed the mouth and belly. I'm just an amateur cook and I cooked this for 11 people. I had to cook it in two different batches, but thankfully it came out fine. I'll be cooking this again, but for fewer people next time.

I see that I have a new recipe for my spicy cookbook.. Made this tonight, wondering what my relatives reaction would be, seeing they are not used to spicy recipes.. Other than doubling this recipe.. and serving 8, including myself, eat and eat, and cleaning our plates, it was a winner. Definately worth keeping this one !!!
