This recipe is from Taste of Home Healthy Cooking April/May 2008 page 24

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of chicken broth
  • 1 package of skinless boneless chicken breasts cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon of sesame oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of canola oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh snow peas (I could not find fresh snow peas and used a can of sweet peas instead)
  • 2 medium carrots cut into small pieces
  • 1 can (8ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • Cooked white rice
Directions
  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 2 tablespoons soy sauce,1 tablespoon of chicken broth, and 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil; add the chicken. Seal the bag and turn to coat. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Stir in the sugar, vinegar, hoisin sauce, ginger, salt, and remaining soy sauce, and sesame oil; set aside.
  3. Drain chicken and discard marinade. In a large nonstick skillet, stir-fry chicken in 1 teaspoon of oil until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm. In the same pan, stir-fry peas and carrots in remaining oil until crisp-tender. Add water chestnuts.
  4. Return the chicken to the pan. Stir sauce mixture and stir into chicken mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for one minute or until thickened. Sprinkle with cashews. Serve with rice.
