How to cook:
  1. Combine all of the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Make sure all of your vegetables and meat are prepped and ready to go, and within reach.
  3. Place the oil into your wok or skillet and heat over high heat.
  4. Season your chicken with the salt and pepper.
  5. When the oil is shimmering but not quite smoking, add in your chicken breast and the onion. Stir constantly until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside, or about 5 minutes. If your wok isn't big enough you may have to cook in batches so you don't overload your cooking surface.
  6. Remove the chicken from the wok, drain any liquid that remains, and add the rest of the oil. Let it heat and then cook the vegetables in batches until they are crisp-tender.
  7. Place all of the meat and vegetables back in the pan over medium-high heat. Give your stir-fry sauce a stir and then pour it into the pan.
  8. Stir the mixture constantly until it is thickened. Remove from heat and serve over rice.

Provided by: Stacey
Total time: 45 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Prep time: 25 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
Number of ingredients: 18
  • 3 large boneless breasts of chicken
  • 2 eggplants (see note#1)
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, finely diced
  • 1 onion, cut in strips
  • 1/3 cup of chopped scallion
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ cup olive oil (for cooking eggplant)
  • 2-3 tablespoons canola oil (for cooking chicken)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese wine (Shaoxing wine) OR rice vinegar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
How to cook:
  1. Don’t forget to watch my video with all the step-by-step instructions.
  2. Prior to starting the recipe, I usually stick my boneless breast of chicken in the freezer for a couple of hours. It won’t freeze, but it will get firm enough that it’s easier to slice into thin pieces.
  3. Once the chicken is firm, take a moment to trim any excess fat from the chicken. You could trim the fat before putting in the freezer too. It's up to you.
  4. Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise then slice into thin strips – about ¼” thick. Put in a large bowl. Video shows this well. Note: yes, you only see two chicken breasts in the video, but there was a third that I cut also. I just couldn't fit it on the cutting board.
  5. Velvet the chicken for the ultimate tenderness. Add the baking soda to the chicken and mix thoroughly so all the pieces are coated. Let that sit for 20 minutes while you do the other prep work.
  6. If you are making basmati rice with this dish, you should start cooking that now. Follow the package instructions. I do recommend washing the rice thoroughly before cooking.
  7. Finely dice the garlic.
  8. Slice the onion into strips.
  9. Chop the scallions.
  10. Make the sauce. Mix together the oyster sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine (Shaoxing wine) OR rice vinegar, hoisin sauce and sugar. Give it a whisk and add a little water to thin out the sauce. Add 1 tablespoon and mix. If it’s still too thick, add another tablespoon of water. Set sauce aside for now. If you want it spicy add some chili sauce like sambal to give it a kick.
  11. Chop the eggplant. Whichever eggplant you use will determine how you slice it. Just make sure your pieces are at least ½” thick. Remember, eggplant shrinks a bit and if it’s too thin it will fall apart in the stir fry. (see video).
  12. After 20 minutes mixed with the baking soda, place the chicken pieces in a colander and run under water to wash off the baking soda. Transfer chicken pieces to a plate or sheet pan and blot the water off with a paper towel. Try to get the chicken as dry as possible.
  13. Season the chicken on one side with salt and pepper. For three chicken breasts, I would say it’s about ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper.
  14. You’ll need two pans for the stir fry. One pan should be the chopped eggplant and olive oil. Put heat on low-to-medium, add half the olive oil and heat for a couple of minutes. Add the eggplant and stir quickly because the eggplant absorbs oil very quickly. Add the rest of the olive oil and mix again. Season with salt to taste - maybe 1/4 teaspoon. Sauté for 2-3 minutes then cover the eggplant and let it steam a bit, maybe 3-5 minutes until it’s tender and browned slightly. Make sure to give it a stir a couple of times while the chicken is cooking. You want the eggplant to be tender - that's the main goal.
  15. The other pan is to cook the chicken. Add the canola oil and heat on high heat. Add the chicken. You’ll need to cook in two batches so you don’t crowd the pan too much. Spread the pieces out so they are not overlapping. Cook for 2 minutes or so, then turn and cook the other side for 2 minutes. Remove that chicken and cook the next batch until all chicken is cooked.
  16. As the second batch of chicken is finishing, add the onions to the pan. Then add the first batch of chicken back to the pan. Mix together.
  17. Add the garlic to the middle of the pan and let it get fragrant for a minute. Then mix to incorporate in the stir fry.
  18. Add the sauce to the pan and mix to coat the chicken.
  19. Add the eggplant and scallions and give it one final mix. You can save some scallions for garnish too if you like. Serve over basmati rice.
Notes: Stir fry Chicken Chili Paste with Eggplant, Turn the stove on medium high heat, add the olive oil and garlic and fry until fragrant. Add the chili paste and shallots, stirring frequently, cook until …
