Mongolian Chicken

by Sheryl

It may only be the Chinese American favorite dish for Mongolian Beef. Crispy, salty, sweet, and spicy, covered in a sweet, sweet sauce, ideal for steaming white rice. While the legendary P.F. Chang is, we have created our recipe for Mongolian Chicken. There’s also a time when you’re looking for new things instead of the very old Orange Chickens, Sesame Chickens, and the world’s General Tso. This Mongolia Chicken is the trick.

Ingredients:

12 oz chicken breast or thighs (boneless and skinless), pat dry with paper towels and cut into ¼-inch thick slices
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp of ginger, julienned or minced
5 dried red chili peppers (optional)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 (cut on a diagonal into 1-inch slices) scallions
2 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce
2 tbsp of brown sugar
¼ cup hot water or you can use low sodium chicken stock
2 tablespoons cornstarch, mixed with 1 tbsp of water

Directions:

1. Heat one-half cup of fuel on high heat in a wok. At this time, dredge the pieces once more before frying when the cornstarch has absorbed the pickles and gets moist again. Just before smoking, pour the chicken into the wok and brown for 1 minute, until browned or crispy until it starts to smoke.

2. Heat one-half a cup of oil in a wok. If cornstarch is absorbed and moisturized again, dredge the chicken before frying. Just before the olive oil begins to smoke, pour chicken parts into the wok evenly and fry them for 1 minute.

2. Turn the chicken and allow another thirty seconds to brown on the other side. Transfer to a sheet of paper towels. The chicken should be crusty-coated on all sides.

4. Drain the wok oil, leave 1 tbsp behind, and heat medium. Add ginger fry until fragrant for 20 seconds. If used, add the dried chili peppers and the white portions of the scallions. Stir the sauce, brown sugar, and chicken stock (or water) for another 15 seconds. Add the soy sauce. Bring the sauce to a frying glass and stir until the brown sugar has dissolved.

5. Stir in the cornstarch-water mixture and coat for a further two minutes until a sauce is covered. Add the chicken and the scallions’ green portions. For another 10 seconds, toss everything together.

6. The sauce should adhere to the chicken, almost no liquid. Add more cornstarch slurry and slightly increase the heat if you still have an excess sauce. Stir until thicken
