Spicy Garlic Chicken

Spicy Garlic ChickenThis garlic chicken recipe is really simple to make, and after you try it, you might think to yourself, why is it garlic chicken, when it only calls for a a tablespoon of chopped garlic? Now as you think of that, you will also be thinking of how wonderful the texture and flavors are in your mouth. Once again, another really simply throw together recipe, with a few ingredients. You can serve it over rice, or part of vegetable stir fry, your call.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cleaned and cut into smaller cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sherry cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro roots
  • Cooked rice (optional)

For the sauce to stir fry in:

  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 tbsp of chicken stock

Begin by mixing the soy sauce and cornstarch, and toss in the chicken. Mix well, and marinate for roughly 20 minutes or longer (the longer the better). When you are ready, begin by warming up your olive oil in pan. Toss in garlic and cilantro root (Note that if you trim the dirty part of the bunch of cilantro, you can finely chop these stems, of which provide really great flavor in dishes), and quickly cook. Toss in the chicken, and stir fry until the chicken is no longer pink. Next, toss in the fish sauce, soy sauce, pepper, and sugar, and combine. Toss in the stock, and mix, bringing to a quick boil.

This is ready to serve. Place over rice, or accompany with stir fry vegetable. I used a chopped bok choy, carrrots, and scallion with garlic and oyster sauce with jalapeno rings. Enjoy.
