Chinese Chicken with Snow Peas Recipe

Chicken with Snow Peas
Chinese chicken with snow peas is a great dinner to serve over rice. The chicken is first marinated and then breaded and baked in the oven instead of using the deep-fryer. The use of the broiler in this recipe helps to create a crispy coating on the chicken. The chicken is then mixed with a sauce that consists of part of the marinade, sugar and water. This recipe does require a little bit of work to prepare all of the ingredients but it is well worth it. A good option for a side dish is egg rolls. Enjoy!

  • 2 chicken breast fillets (or their equivalent in thigh or leg fillets)
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce divided
  • 2 teaspoons tapioca (or corn or potato) starch, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 cup snow peas trimmed
  • 1/4 cup julienned carrot

  1. Wipe the chicken fillets with paper towels. Cut into bite-size pieces. Place in a bowl. Add a tablespoonful of soy sauce, half of the starch and all of the sesame seed oil. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, make the sauce by stirring together the remaining soy sauce, starch, chicken broth, oyster sauce, and sugar.
  3. Heat a tablespoonful of oil in a wok or frying pan. Stir fry the snow peas and carrot strips for half a minute. Scoop out and transfer to a plate.
  4. Heat more cooking oil in the wok or frying pan. Spread the chicken pieces in a single layer. Cook for two minutes then flip them over and cook for another minute.
  5. Add the garlic to the chicken. Stir everything up and cook, stirring often, for another minute or two.
  6. Add the vegetables to the chicken.
  7. Stir the sauce and pour into the pan. Stir fry for another half a minute or just until the sauce is thick and coats every piece of chicken and vegetable.
