Chicken Stir-Fry! It’s no secret that I love, love Stir fry recipes. I mean, what’s not to love? They’re cheap, tasty and very easy to prepare. For this recipe, the main ingredients are Hoisin Sauce (this can be replaced with Oyster Sauce), White or Rice Vinegar, Soy sauce and Sesame Oil.
You may also use any other protein you prefer instead of Chicken. I’ve got a recipe for Chicken and mushroom stir fry on the blog, click HERE to view if you’re interested.
300g Boneless Chicken ( I’m using thighs)
3 Tablespoons Sunflower Oil
Yellow, Red and Green Bell Peppers (1 of each)
1 Red Onion
1 Cup Beansprouts
You can mix and match your vegetables, use pretty much any thing you want.
For The Chicken
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
A Teaspoon Black Pepper
Teaspoon Chicken seasoning or 1 Knorr Chicken cube
3 Tablespoons Cornflour or Corn starch
For The Sauce
6 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce, substitute for Oyster Sauce
4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 inch Ginger root, grated
5 Garlic Cloves (grated)
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
3 Tablespoons Rice or White Vinegar
Season the chicken with the Garlic Powder, Black Pepper and also the Chicken seasoning/Knorr Cube. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, rub the Chicken with the Cornflour, making sure they’re well coated all over..
I didn’t have Cornflour, so I skipped this part.
You really should use cornflour, this helps to improve the texture of the chicken.
Then, mix all the ingredients for the sauce and set aside…
Pour the Sunflower oil into a wok or frying pan. Place on medium heat. When the oil is hot, fry the chicken till golden brown, then remove from the pan and set aside…
Leaving the juice from the chicken in the pan, set the pan back on the hob. Turn the heat up to moderately high. Pour in the Chopped onions and sauté for 2 minutes, making sure to stir continuously…
Also add the carrots, saute for a minute…
Then the Chopped Peppers and Mangetout, sauté for a minute…
Now, add the Beansprouts, sauté for a minute…
Then add the sauce mixture, stir and combine, leave to simmer for 2 minutes…
Then add the chicken back into the pan, stir and combine, cook for a minute. Your Chicken Stir-fry is ready…
Serve your Chicken Stir fry with Pasta or Rice..
