My quick and delicious Chicken with Garlic Sauce combines tender chunks of wok-fried chicken breast with crisp vegetables in a creamy garlic sauce! All of the ingredients come together to make a delicious, healthful stir-fry that the whole family will enjoy!
1 ½ tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoon garlic (minced)
2 teaspoon ginger (minced – or use ½ teaspoon ginger powder)
½ cup carrot (washed and sliced)
½ cup celery (washed and sliced)
2 cups broccoli florets
1 ½ `cups mushrooms (about 4 ounces, washed and sliced)
1 lb chicken breast (sliced into thin strips)
⅓ cup chicken broth
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry (or sake)
½ tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili paste (Sambal Oelek brand)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoon water (cold, to make slurry)
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the garlic sauce ingredients. Combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, dry sherry, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and chili paste in a large mixing bowl. Remove the item from circulation. Set aside a small basin containing cornstarch and cold water.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. After that, add the garlic and ginger, followed by the vegetables (broccoli, carrot, and celery). Stir-fry for 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
- Stir-fry the mushrooms and sliced chicken with the veggies for 1-2 minutes, or until the chicken is totally cooked. Add the garlic sauce and a quick swirl to the slurry before adding it to the stir fry. As the sauce thickens, continue to stir-fry for about 1 minute.
- Remove from the heat and serve right away.
It’s great if you coat the sliced chicken with the sauce (cornstarch slurry and all) after combining it in step 1 and let it marinate for the best flavor.
If you choose with this option, you might want to make a second batch of sauce (rather than use the sauce that had raw chicken in it).
