Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 T low-sodium soy sauce
    1 t hoisin sauce
    1 c warm water
    1 T cornstarch

    1 t peanut or olive oil
    1 t garlic, minced
    1 t ginger, minced
    1 t Thai hot sauce
    2 c mushrooms, sliced
    2 c broccoli slaw or chopped broccoli
    1 c carrots, shredded
    1 roasted red bell pepper
    2 c chicken breasts, cooked and cubed

Tips

This recipe uses two great products that can help you expedite your cooking: jarred garlic and ginger!

Another great tip for busy nights: Bake, broil, grill or poach chicken breasts at the beginning of the week, and you'll have them on hand for meals throughout the week.


Directions

Combine the soy sauce, hoisin, water, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir to combine; set aside. In a flat bottomed pan or wok set to high heat, add the oil, garlic, ginger, and Thai hot sauce. Stir fry for 1 minute. Add the vegetables and chicken. Stir fry, moving all ingredients in the wok quickly for 3-4 minutes. Add prepared sauce and continue to cook until the liquid thickens. Serve with brown rice or rice noodles.
Makes four two cup servings.

    When stir frying, I always cook the meat first (especially with chicken) to make sure it gets cooked through. Remove from wok and stir fry veggies, adding meat back at the end.
    For goodness sake, season to your liking - if you find it bland, add some more Thai hot sauce. - 7/17/11

    Good- but needs more flavor-- more ginger, garlic, and hot sauce will help! - 8/28/10

    Excellent! Quick and easy. Only thing I would change is to stir fry the chicken first then set aside, cook veggies, then add chicken back in. But more oil will probably be required to cook veggies and is most likely why Meg did it this way. Will definitely cook this again - 3/28/12

    Haven't tried it yet, so can't rate it. However, based on the comments I will add a bit more ginger, garlic and hot sauce. It's hard to understand why several people ask what hoisin is. Ever heard of Google? I've never come up blank when Googling. - 1/7/12

    Excellent and very filling. I had fresh broccoli from my garden and I used some bean sprouts to stretch it out even more without a lot of extra calories. - 7/21/11

    I am going to try this recipe tonight. We are trying to cut back on the red meat (a difficult thing for ex South Africans), but this chicken recipe seems easy, healthy and tasty. Thank you for helping us to change our bad habits. We love SparkPeople Recipe's! - 2/8/10

    Super simple and very good. I did add a tsp of cornstarch to the soy sauce mixture to thicken up the sauce. My family (kids too) liked it. Thanks. - 4/27/12

    I substituted fish sauce (since that's what I had on hand) for hoisin sauce, tripled the garlic, ginger, and hot sauce, then added an onion to the aromatics. It was very tasty and my steak-and-potato-loving husband went back for seconds. - 9/18/12

    I thought the sauce was a little bland. We added another T of soy sauce and a T of oyster sauce, and that helped a lot. I make a lot of stir fries, so I'm always excited to try a new sauce recipe! - 7/17/11

    Hoisin sauce, or haixian sauce, is a Chinese dipping sauce.

    Haven't tried this recipe yet but have added it to my 'cookbook'. - 6/16/11

    This was great-used red and yellow peppers and added pea pods and extra low sodium soy sauce when served up. Didn't use mushrooms but will make a version of this one night a week. New goal. - 7/17/10
