- 4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 bunch broccoli, separated into flowerets and sliced stems
- 2 cups snow peas
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 2 inches fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄3 cup cold water
- 1⁄3 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄3 cup dry sherry
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- Cut the chicken into 1 inch strips and stir-fry it in the oil over high heat for about 2 minutes, until it has browned and is barely cooked through. Drain the chicken and set it aside.
- Steam the broccoli flowerets and the sliced stems for 3 minutes, and the snow peas for 1 minute. Set them aside.
- Boil the chicken stock, ginger, and garlic for 5 minutes and then strain the stock.
- Combine the cornstarch with the cold water. Stir it into the chicken stock and boil the mixture until it has thickened. Add the soy sauce, sherry, and sesame oil. Add the chicken and vegetables to the sauce and heat through. Serve with boiled or steamed rice.
This is excellent. I did make some adjustments (based on ingredients I had at hand) - I used 1/2 of the chicken and added more veggies- carrots, mushrooms,green pepper, green peas. Also, substituted pasta for the rice. I didn't have any sherry, so I used merlot instead. It's the combination of the garlic, ginger, soy and wine that make this recipe. Awesome! DH loved it too! Highly recommended.
I made this recipe for Add More Veggies Challenge ZWT4. I added 1 cup of cauliflower, one medium carrot and 3 green onions. I used only 3 breasts so I did not need to make extra sauce for the extra veggies. I really could taste the sherry in this sauce. Very good! I served this over steamed white rice.
We enjoyed this very much! I threw in some extra veggies (carrots, onions, water chestnuts and mushrooms)Delicious. Like some of the other reviewers, I like the beautiful golden sauce before adding the soy sauce and sherry. I think next time I will just add a few splashes at a time until I get it where I want it. Definitely a keeper though. Thanks for posting!
