J! This is sooo good! Even my 8 year old loved it! This was one of my picks for last weeks ABC chef game. It's so easy to prepare, and cooks so quickly, great for a quick evening meal. I added a couple TBSP of hoisin, and about 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, at the same time that I added the chicken back to the pan. The sauce is delicious, and there is plenty of it. Had it served over Basmati rice. I wold have added some extra spice as Mark suggested, but I was serving to the kids, so I held back. Thumbs up from all of us!
This was easy to make. I was hesitant about letting a cornstarch-based sauce simmer without stirring, but it worked just fine. If I make it again, I'll marinate the pork chunks in the sauce before adding cornstarch (the broccoli was fantastic, but the pork a little bland). Besides other seasoning suggestions, maybe a few drops of sesame oil?
I've had this on my list since it was posted and finally got a chance to make it. It's a very simple recipe to put together. The pork came out very tender and the sauce goes well with the broccoli. I tasted it while it was cooking and thought it might need a little more kick, so I added the hoisin sauce and also about 1 to 1.5 tsp of five-spice. Worked out well. This is great served over rice. I'm sure I'll be making it again. Thanks for posting Jelisa
