Submitted by: GETTINSTRONGTOO


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 lb ground chicken breast
    1 cup small dice red pepper
    .75 cup thin sliced scallions - green and white parts
    .75 cup small dice water chestnuts from can
    3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
    3 tbsp hoisin sauce
    Water or no fat low sodium chicken broth to loosen if too dry
    Low Sodium Soy Sauce to taste

Directions

Over medium heat in a sautee pan cook chicken as you would ground beef breaking up meat into small pieces.
Once chicken is cooked add red peppers and simmer adding a little water (1/4 cup) if pan is dry.
Add scallions, water chestnuts, and cilantro and then stir in hoisin sauce mixing thoroughly.
Enjoy with ice cold lettuce (iceberg or romaine whatever you like).
Add a little soy sauce if you want more salt or a little water or stock if you think its too dry but adding liquid will thin out the hoisin taste.

    My sister-in-law is Thai. The recipe that she gave me is very similar to this, but she adds some Chinese Mushrooms. My whole family loves these! - 7/21/10
