Chicken with Walnuts and Hoi Sin Sauce

Posted 2017-02-17 by finyfollow

This chicken meal tasted delicious with the crunchy texture of walnuts together with the just cooked, tender pieces of chicken breast.

An easy, no fuss recipe!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
About 650 g chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
3 tbsp corn flour
3 tsp dry sherry
¾ tsp ginger
3 tbsp Hoi Sin sauce
1½ tsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 - 3 garlic cloves, crushed
100 g walnut halves, broken
1 tsp sesame oil
Rice

Method
  • Cook your rice as per packet instructions, and keep warm. I generally do not cook it completely and leave it in the hot water to finish cooking while I make the rest of the meal.

  • Put the chicken pieces in a bowl and add the cornflour, ginger, and sherry. Mix and leave.
  • Chicken pieces should be about this size


  • Mix the Hoi sin sauce, soy sauce, coconut sugar, and about 3 tbsp of water, and stir until it is smooth - leave.


  • Heat about 2 tbsp oil in a wok and add the garlic. Stir the chicken mixture again, and add to the wok after about 30 seconds.

  • Stir fry this for about 2 - 3 minutes, or until the chicken pieces are almost cooked - do not overcook, or it will be tough.

  • Reduce the heat and stir in the Hoisin sauce mixture.

  • Keep stirring until it is all well mixed, and then add the walnuts and sesame oil. Stir a few times.


  • Put some rice on each plate and serve the walnut chicken on top of the rice.

  • Even better the next day, and I served it with my [link http://recipeyum.com.au/polenta-with-sun-dried-tomatoes-and-mozzarella/ Polenta squares].


  • This recipe would also go well with a simple salad,
