I know, I know - I love a stir fry. There...I admitted it.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1lb. chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ¼-½ cup cornstarch
  • 1-2 tablespoons neutral oil, like avocado
  • 4-6 green onion sprigs, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons Sambal Chili Garlic sauce (depends how spicy you like)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • In medium bowl add chicken and ¼ cup cornstarch, coat the chicken well but shake off excess using a sifter - set aside.
  • Heat pan or wok until almost smoking - add 1 tablespoon oil and chicken
  • Cook chicken until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes then stir in green onions and cook for  a minute or so; remove chicken and set aside
  • Place same pan/wok back on medium heat, add a touch of oil, garlic and ginger - cook until fragrant about 30 seconds, then add soy sauce, honey and Sambal
