Ingredients

HUNAN CHICKEN:

1/4 c. canola oil
1 lb chicken breasts shaved thinly
1 tbsp ginger minced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 green zucchini cut into half-moon shapes
4 oz. mushrooms sliced thinly
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 can bamboo shoots drained
3 c. broccoli florets

HUNAN SAUCE:

1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 c. chicken broth
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp Sambal Oelek chili paste
1 tsp sugar

How to make Hunan Chicken

Step 1: In a large Ziplock bag, add the chicken and cornstarch. Seal the bag, close it tightly, then shake until the chicken is completely coated.

Step 2: To a pan, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the hot oil and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Step 3: Whisk the sauce ingredients (cornstarch, chicken broth, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, oyster sauce, sugar, and Sambal Oelek chilli paste) in a small bowl until blended.

Step 4: Take the chicken out of the pan and set it aside. To the now-empty pan, add garlic, ginger, zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli, and bamboo shoots. Stir and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then, add in the sauce and chicken. Toss and continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes until the sauce is thick.
