Number of Servings: 4


    1 pound skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
    3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1/2 cup low -sodium chicken broth
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    2 medium carrots, thinly sliced on a diagonal
    1/4 cup unsalted, dry roasted peanuts


1. Combine the chicken, 1 tablespoon of the hoisin sauce, and 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch in a medium bowl; toss well to coat and set aside. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, the broth, vinegar, sugar, and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl; set aside

2. Heat a nonstick wok or large, deep skillet over medium heat until a drop of water sizzles. Swirl in the oil then add the chicken. Stir-fry until almost cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic; stir-fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the bell pepper, carrots, and peanuts; stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, and the chicken is cooked through, about 1 minute.

This recipe is a little spicy but it is one of my favorites. If you want a little more spice (which I normally do) add a little more of the chili-garlic sauce to the recipe.

Please don't use the nutritional information provided by system as I could not find many of the ingredients on the list of ingredients nor did I have the nutritional information in front of me to add. Please use numbers provided by WW spelled out above.
