"Hope this helps! Tender chicken, vegetables, and fried almonds, bathed in a soy based sauce, tastes just like a Chinese restaurant favorite."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Mix the soy sauce, salt, cornstarch, and sherry in a large bowl. Stir in chicken; cover and refrigerate.
  2. Heat 1 1/2 cups of the peanut oil in a large, deep skillet. Fry almonds in the oil until golden, about 1 minute. Drain fried almonds on a paper towel.
  3. Drain all but 3 tablespoons of oil from the skillet. Stir in the mushrooms, bamboo shoots, celery, onion, and water chestnuts. Cook and stir vegetables for 1 minute. Remove from skillet.
  4. Heat 1/4 cup oil in the skillet. Cook and stir the marinated chicken in hot oil until no longer pink in the center, and the juices run clear, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in cooked vegetables, chicken stock, and reserved soy sauce mixture; simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in fried almonds before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • For quicker prep, use skinless, boneless chicken breasts. Try using walnuts instead of almonds for a nice change.
