An Easy, Delicious Stir-Fry Creation!
Hands down, this Chicken Curry recipe is my family’s very favorite stir-fry dish. I obtained it from Hugh Carpenter, his book entitled, Pacific Flavors.
I love stir-fry dishes because it can be prepared the night before and it comes together in 10 minutes.
Boneless chicken breasts, marinated, then stir-fried in a blazing hot wok are incredibly tender and full of flavor. You can make this as a solo entree or part of an assortment of other stir-fry dishes. You may also change up the vegetable, try broccoli florets or perhaps some thinly sliced carrots.

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for sauce and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Place wok over highest heat.
When wok becomes very hot, add 1 tablespoon of peanut oil to center of wok.
Roll oil around sides of wok.
When oil begins to smoke, add chicken and stir-fry
until it just loses raw outside color, about 3 minutes.
Transfer to a bowl.
Immediately return wok to highest heat.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon peanut oil to center, then add minced garlic and ginger.
Saute a few seconds, then add red onion and green pepper.
Stir-fry until onion pieces separate and green pepper brightens, about 3 minutes.

When sauce comes to a low boil, stir in a little
cornstarch mixture so sauce glazes the food.

heated platter or serve over rice on individual plates.
