Hoisin Chicken withTahini Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Posted 2018-08-28 by finyfollow

I only had one chicken breast left in my freezer and as I love recipes made with Hoisin sauce, I made a quick stir fry.

I added a very different mashed potato dish to this.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
For the mash
2 sweet potatoes, cut into chunks
2 tbsp Tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Sumac
1 tbsp pine nuts - optional

For the chicken
1 large chicken breast, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced or chopped
1 spring onion, finely diced
1 tsp ginger
1 small chili, sliced (or to your liking)
¼ cup raw, unsalted peanuts
¼ cup chicken stock
1½ tbsp Hoi sin sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce

Method
For the potato
  • Put the sweet potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water.

  • Bring to the boil, and boil for about 15 minutes or until they are tender.

  • Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.

  • Add the tahini, olive oil, and sumac.


  • Mash with a potato masher.


  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Serve, and garnish with pine nuts, if using.


  • For the chicken
  • Heat some oil in a wok over high heat. Add the chicken and stir fry for a minute or two.

  • Remove the chicken, and add the garlic, spring onion, ginger and chili to the wok. Stir fry for a few seconds.

  • Add the peanuts and cook for a minute or so until they are starting to go brown.


  • Return the chicken to the wok and stir fry for another minute.


  • Mix the chicken stock, Hoisin sauce, and soy sauce in a bowl, and stir.

  • Add this to the wok.

  • Continue to cook for a few more minutes, but do not overcook or the chicken will become dry.


  • Cook till the sauce reduces slightly, and thickens.

  • Serve with the mashed potatoes, or serve on top of rice.
