1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cut into cubes
extra-virgin olive oil
green onions, chopped
bell pepper, chopped
I thought this was delicious. I only gave it four stars because I changed some things. I used hoisin sauce instead of soy sauce. Hoisin sauce has soy sauce in it but tastes better than soy sauce. I used half teaspoon of ginger and half teaspoon of curry powder. I did not use sesame oil or sesame seeds because I did not have them. I served this with rice and I will definitely make it again.
Let's start by saying that there isn't any left in my family of three. But..It's as salty as a salted salt stick from Salty the salted sailor. I think that's just way too much soy sauce mixed with the chicken broth. I was able to rescue by spooning in a couple of spoons of creme fraiche (most awesome french gunk ever) I'd use 1/4 cup soy and 1/4 cup of hoisin next time and cut in about a tablespoon of garlic powder, but I add garlic powder to everything and you should too so I can feel validated.
I'm giving this 4 stars because we all liked it and that's including a 7 & 4 year old. I do agree that it's too salty as is though. Next time I will use low sodium soy or broth and add some garlic and red pepper flakes.
We really enjoyed this. I did make a few changes to make it vegan and reduce the sodium. I substituted tempeh for chicken. I left out the broth and corn starch completely. I used low sodium soy and halved it. I used this as filling for lettuce wraps. The crisp lettuce was a nice contrast. We garnished with sriracha. Yum!
Excellent - needs low Na+ chicken broth
We actually thought this dish was bland. I think using fresh ginger root or chopped ginger in a jar would have been better than ground ginger. We used reduced-sodium bouillon and soy sauce, so we didn't have a salt issue as others had.
Very good, this is what I've been looking for, I might add pineapple chunks next time.
This was great! I used 1 Trader Joe's chicken packet with 1.5 cups of water and less soy sauce and it still tasted good but wasn't too salty. I used frozen broccoli and cauliflour and sliced fresh zucchini that I added with the sauce. My kids loved it.
