Three-cup Chicken Recipe

Go to the 17 bean soup comments page

This is inspired by the many three-cup chicken recipes.




Mix together cornstarch in water in small bowl.
Whisk together soy sauce, wine, and sugar in medium bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat.

Heat oil, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes in skillet on medium-low. Cook until garlic is golden brown and a little soft, about 8 minutes.

Add chicken and marinade to skillet. Heat on med-high to simmer. Reduce to med-low and simmer 10 minutes. Add white scallions and simmer another 5 minutes.

Mix in cornstarch mixture and cook until thickened, about 1 minute.

Remove skillet from heat and mix in basil, sesame oil, and green scallions.


Doug's Notes

Make cornstarch mixture near end of simmering chicken.
I use Italian basil leaves out of my garden.
Use spoon to peel fresh ginger.
