Chicken in Spicy Black Bean Sauce

Prep time: 20 minutes.
Serves 4 guests.

  • 12 ounces chicken breast - cut in 1/4" strips
  • 2/3 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 4 green onions - sliced
  • 6 ounces mushroom - sliced
  • 8 ounces broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup black beans, cooked
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2/3 cup dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove - minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger root - grated
  • 1 red chiles - thinly sliced

Step One: In a shallow bowl, combine sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and chilies; stir well. Stir in chicken, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Lift from bowl with a slotted spoon; measure marinade and add enough stock to make 1 1/4 cups. Set aside.

Step Two: In a wok or large frying pan, heat sesame and peanut oil over high heat. Add chicken and stir fry until browned (4 minutes).

Step Three: Add green onions, mushrooms, broccoli, and black beans; stir fry until broccoli is tender-crisp (5 minutes).

Step Four: In a small cup, mix cornstarch and water together. Add cornstarch mixture to stock-marinade mixture. Pour into pan and cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened.
