Sweet and Spicy Chicken Stir Fry

  • Rating:


  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, sliced thin
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, cut into strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips (our store was out, so I used an orange one)
  • 2 large carrots, sliced thin on the diagonal
  • 1/2 lb snow peas
  • handful of cashew halves
  • Sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Mix all sauce ingredients with a whisk. Set aside.

Heat 1 Tbsp sesame oil in large skillet over high heat, being careful not to let burn. Add chicken, ginger, and garlic. Saute for a few minutes until the chicken is no longer pink. Add onion, peppers, and carrots, sauteing for another minute or two. When vegetables are crisp-tender, add snow peas, cashews and sauce. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Serve hot over rice.
