Quick Hoisin Chicken Stir-Fry
I love making Chinese stir-fry dishes. And I love that this one requires only very minimal food-preparation time. It's tasty and goes well served with Recipe #158291
- Ready In:
- 4 -6 ounces snow peas
- 0.5 (4 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, cut into quarters
- 1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- Soak snow peas in very cold water for a few minutes only if they are not crisp; trim and string them; blot peas and water chestnuts dry with a clean paper towel; set aside.
- Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and cornstarch; stir or toss to coat evenly.
- Add vegetable oil to a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat; heat until oil is almost smoking; add chicken to skillet and sauté 2 minutes or until the chicken is just barely done; add snow peas, water chestnuts, hoisin sauce, and sugar to skillet; sauté 1-2 minutes more until chicken and veggies are evenly coated with sauce; serve with rice or noodles.

Wow! Easy & delicious! Who would ever know it went together so fast and easy? I made it just as written (with the exception that I threw in some sliced mushrooms with the vegetables because they were in the refrigerator and needed to be used). Wonderful recipe. Will make again and definitely recommend. Thanks.1Reply
This was a great recipe!! I didn't have the hoisin sauce so I made a quick one using this recipe. http://www.food.com/recipe/hoisin-sauce-recipe-443956 I didn't add any sugar since my hoisin recipe already called for honey and pnb. From one of the earlier reviews I opted to marinate my chicken for about 20 mins, used frozen snap peas and served over some boil a bag rice for a quick dinner! I'll definitely be making this again.3Reply
