This was a really good idea for pears & chicken.I used fresh pears ( about 12oz sliced)& 1 sm apple chopped.I mariated the chicken with a marinate I use often for stirfry and I think it always make the meat taste better.Use 1TB of the cornstarch,1TB of the soy sauce,2 cloves garlic minced or pressed,1/2 tp fresh grated ginger root (I think the ginger is the missing ingred someone was trying to think of).Let this marinate in the frig. at least 15 min.,even several hrs. is good. When using the garlic & the cornstarch in the marinate remember to subtract that amount from your recipe.I simmered the fresh pear & apple + 1lg.thin sliced carrot ( another great addition from someone,it's good for color + flavor) in one skillet until just tender then added the liq.,I used double also 1&1/2 c water +1&1/2 c ck. broth.Let that simmer while you brown your chicken in another skillet,add 1/2c minced onion to ck. Add the remaining 5 TB corn starch to 1/2 c water and add to sauce ( you should have already added the 5TB soy sauce while simmering).I used cashews and added them to the browning chicken for a min then dumped the chicken into the skillet with the sauce.I used the fresh parley,I added it at the end and just stirred it in. I served this over jasmine white rice.It was so good my husband and I made yummy noises all thru the meal.I served egg rolls with hot mustard on the side. The hot mustard and the sweet sauce pear sauce were a good combo.I will make this again.
