Chicken Stir Fry
2 c chicken broth
2 c Jasmine rice (best rice to use for stir fry)
I throw mine into a rice cooker (a must have) and push the button!
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
2 T Iron Chef Sesame Garlic Sauce & Glaze
2 T vegetable oil
1 t sesame oil
3-4 cloves garlic, pressed
1 T lime juice
2 T soy sauce
Cut chicken and stir the remaining ingredients to cover the chicken. Let "marinate" at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Almonds or Cashews (optional)
Wash, cut & slice whichever vegetables you like (I just use what I have on hand, never the same each time I make it). Set aside ready for stir fry.
1 c Chicken Broth
2 T corn starch
1/4 c Iron Chef Sesame Garlic Sauce & Glaze
Stir and set aside.
Put 1 t. sesame oil in large skillet pan. Turn burner on between medium high and high. Let oil heat, then add the chicken and level across the bottom of pan, cover and cook, stirring occasionally for about 6-8 minutes. Put in a clean bowl and set aside. Put another teaspoon or so of sesame oil in pan and add raw vegetables and coat all with oil, then add about 1/4 c chicken broth and cover with lid and let steam for 4-5 minutes. When the vegetables are done, throw the chicken back in and add the gravy mixture all in one pot and stir everything and let cook for about another 2 minutes until the sauce will thicken and coat everything. Serve hot! :)
This amount of ingredients serves our family of 5, and my kids will eat seconds. If you are just two people, I would cut everything in half! :)
This recipe sounds complicated, but trust me, worth every second of the work. It's actually not all that hard to make, just a lot of "prep." It cooks up in less than 15 minutes! The Iron Chef glaze is a MUST HAVE to make this the ultimate dish. I used to be able to find it in the Chinese aisle at Fry's (for my Arizona friends), but very recently they have stopped carrying it. So I ordered it on Amazon at the following link. http://www.amazon.com/Sesame-Garlic-Natural-15-Ounce-Bottles/dp/B00032KHPI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=grocery&qid=1267332644&sr=8-1 One bottle will last you approximately 3 batches.
