Ingredients

Marinade
    • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced ginger (about 1″ ginger root)
    • 1 tablespoon garlic chili sauce or chili paste
    • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
    • 1 tablespoon lite soy sauce
Chicken
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced horizontally and then into small cubes
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  1. Whisk together the marinade. Put the chicken pieces in a bowl and toss well to coat evenly with marinade. Cover and place in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  2. Add canola oil to a sauté pan over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot and shimmering (but not smoking) add the chicken pieces. Cook the chicken for 3- 5 minutes until cooked through and the juices run clear. If the chicken pieces are larger, cook longer.
  3. Serve over brown rice, brown rice noodles, or quinoa. Garnish with chopped cilantro or chopped scallions, if desired.
