Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced gingerroot
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 sweet green pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups bean sprouts rinsed
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Method

Cut chicken across the grain into thin strips. In wok or large deep skillet, heat half of the oil over high heat; stir-fry chicken, in 2 batches, until no longer pink inside, about 4 minutes. Set aside on plate.

Add remaining oil to wok; stir-fry ginger and garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add carrots, green pepper, mushrooms and pepper; stir-fry for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup (50 mL) water; cover and steam until vegetables are tender-crisp, about 4 minutes.

Sauce: Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together chicken stock, soy sauce, vinegar, cornstarch, sesame oil and hot pepper sauce; pour into centre of wok and boil, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes.

Return chicken to pan; stir-fry until sauce is thickened and glossy. Spread bean sprouts all over platter; top with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with green onions.
