Watch video tips and tricks
uncooked glutinous white rice (sushi rice)
green onions, chopped
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
fresh mushrooms, chopped
toasted sesame seeds
chopped unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
We enjoyed this recipe but read the reviews first and made some changes.
used 1/2 cup of cashews instead of peanuts for the milder taste.
Added 1/2 cup of chicken broth for the sauce at the end which did provide enough an adequate amount.
1/4 tsp of crushed Red Peppers "kicked it up a notch"
Next time I will saute green onions seperately and maybe add some Bok Choy and Snow Peas to add at the end. The green onions are almost non existent when cooking is done and I feel the green color would really add to the presentation and the flavors would be more defined.
It tasted great but it didn;t make enough sauce to coat the rice.
I thought this recipe was very good. However, it does need a bit more "sauce". Next time I will add about 1/2 to 1 cup of chicken broth when adding the corn starch mixture. That should give something for the rice to soak up. I also topped this with crunch chinese noodles. That really gave it a nice crunch.
A very tasty stir fry that satisfied my tastebuds. I did scale the recipe to 3 servings (half) but used the full amount of vinegar and soy sauce. I mixed a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter in 1 cup of chicken broth and added to the simmering chicken for a mild peanut flavor throughout. Cooked angel hair pasta added to the chicken for a few minutes before serving really absorbed lots of good flavor.
We found this to be very good after the following changes (as suggested by others):
3/4 of a can of chicken broth added at the end.
1 cup of cashews
White rice is fine with us.
Covered the pan while it was simmering for 20 min.
Used canned mushrooms instead of fresh.
Very very good. I use cashews instead of peanuts, and I keep some chicken broth on hand to give the dish some extra sauce. I've made this several times...And am planning to make again for dinner tonight.
I thought this recipe was delicious as-is. I like things spicy, so I added a jalepeno. I thought the flavors all blended very well together. Just make sure to coarsly chop up the peanuts in a food processor or they'll be a bit overwhelming.
This was very tasty. I, like some other reviewers, also added some baby bok choy, snow peas and some extra water. My husband even ate everything on his plate and he usually picks around veggies.
