  • 1 lb. chicken breasts (chopped into bite-sized pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Japanese rice wine or dry sherry (see notes in post)
  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili sauce or Sriracha (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 large yellow onion (cut into 1” pieces)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets ((bite size))
  • 3 carrots (thinly sliced)

  • 4-6 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 4 oz. Snow peas

How to cook:
  1. Add the velveting ingredients to a large freezer bag or bowl; whisk to combine. Add chicken and turn until evenly coated. Let sit at room temperature while you prep your veggies; preferable 30 minutes (no more).
  2. Meanwhile, whisk Stir Fry Sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.* Once very hot, add chicken in a single layer and cook until golden; flip chicken over and cook an additional 2 minutes, until browned on all sides (does not need to be cooked through). Remove chicken to a plate.
  4. To the now empty pan (don’t wipe out), heat one tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers and onions. Stir fry until vegetables are crisp tender, about 3 minutes. (Don’t over-cook because they will continue to cook in sauce). Add garlic and ginger to the veggies and sauté 30 seconds.
  5. Whisk sauce (to recombine) and add to pan along with chicken. Bring the sauce to a boil then reduce to a simmer until sauce has thickened;1-2 minutes. Stir in snow peas and cashews and cook an additional minute.
  6. Garnish with additional chili sauce, green onions, salt and pepper to taste if desired.
Notes: Chicken Stir Fry, Dry Sherry (optional): The secret ingredient in Chinese restaurant stir fry's is Shaoxing Wine – but it's not gluten-free!

How to cook:
  1. Prep the chicken - Clean, wash, and pat dry the chicken. Cut into bite-size cubes or long strips.Pro tip - Cut the chicken into small pieces so they cook quickly and can be eaten without having to be cut.
  2. Chicken - In a wok or wide saute pan ( I like using my 12-inch cast-iron skillet) add one tablespoon of oil. Add the chicken pieces and spread them so they cook in a single layer. Cook for 2 minutes on one other side. Then, turn them and cook a few minutes more until almost cooked. Remove chicken and set aside.Pro tip - The chicken breast will take about 6 minutes while chicken thighs will take 8 minutes to cook.
  3. Veggies - To the same wok/skillet add the remaining oil. Stir fry the garlic and ginger and onions for 2 minutes. Then, add the red chilly and green beans and cook for 2 minutes more. Add the carrots and cook for another 2 minutes. Next, add the peppers and stir fry until well combined. Pro tip - Add the peppers only after the beans and carrots are almost tender because peppers cook in less than 2 minutes and must stay crunchy.
  4. Assemble - Return the chicken back to the pan and stir-fry another minute. Then, add all the sauces - light and dark soy sauce, sesame oil, chilly oil, rice vinegar, and honey. Season with salt and pepper. Pro tip - Use less salt in the beginning as some of these sauces contain salt. In the end, taste and adjust as necessary.
  5. Thicken - Finally, combine the cornstarch with water to make a slurry and add it to the stir fry. Combine well. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  6. Serve immediately over boiled noodles, steamed rice, or on its own.
