Saucy Creole Chicken
(no ratings)

This recipe was originally for pork, but I changed it to chicken because we like chicken better. This is a very simple weeknight meal.

This is a basic stir-fry that I like to make up when I want a quick healthy dinner. If you don't like shrimp you can always substitute chicken, beef or pork and any stir-fry veggies will do. (I normally keep several bags in the freezer!)

This is the meal my kids request most when we get together. I've developed this version based on curry in Japan, and my memories of curries my Mom made. It is a real comfort food, and warms the tum, best in cool weather, but my family loves it any time. It makes a big pot -the serving number is an estimate. It's basically a thickened spicy stew, so easily varied according to your tastes. We love it with lots of potatoes and carrots. Enjoy!

Obviously, this recipe can be made lighter by varying the thickening agent, but I personally don't wish to mess with it. Let me know if you have luck with it.

I found this recipe someplace online over a year ago and tweaked it to taste. VERY EASY, very juicy and goes great with green beans and applesauce.
I "eye-ball" measure when I cook this sort of thing, so the measurements given for the marinade ingredients should be to your taste (but DON'T use less Hoison than listed- this is the main taste of the dish!)
This has become the recipe everyone who comes over for dinner wants me to make....and it is SO EASY!
(BTW-you can find Hoison sauce in the asian area of your grocery store-it will be by the soy sauce, teriyaki and other asian sauces and seasonings)

Want to know the secret to great chili? Start with great spices--and skip the packets at the supermarket, which are full of sugar and salt. Make your own to save money and skip the salt.
