Lychee,chicken,with,hoisin,and,lychee,sauce

Chicken and lychees! Sounds a bit odd, but it is a good combination and especially with Hoisin sauce as it has a sweet yet savoury tinge.

Easy to make, this is something a bit different to serve up to visitors or family.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus up to 2 hours marinating
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 3

Ingredients
750 g chicken - I used boneless thighs
Small clove garlic, crushed
tsp ginger
tbsp soy sauce
Bit less than cup Hoisin sauce
tsp chilli sauce
1 tbsp oil
cup water chestnuts
cup bamboo shoots
175 g can lychees, drained
cup lychee juice
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp sesame oil

Method
Mix the garlic, ginger, soy, Hoisin and chilli sauces together and put the chicken pieces in this.

Turn them round so they all have marinade on them, and store up to 2 hours in the fridge.

Drain the marinade, and keep it.

Put the oil in a wok and stir fry the chicken pieces with the lid on for about 10 minutes if using thighs.

Add the reserved marinade. Cover, and cook a further 10 minutes or so.

Mix the lychee juice with the cornflour and add to the wok.

Stir till it thickens - mine was a bit thick so I just added some more lychee juice.

I served it with my home made semolina gnocchi.
