Mongolian Chicken

I think I could eat Chinese food everyday.  Mongolian Chicken is definitely my all time favorite Chinese dish.  It it is spicy and delicious.  Plus, it is quick and easy.  Give this recipe a try.

Mongolian Chicken

3 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
1 onion, cut in half and sliced
1 bunch green onions, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tbs cornstarch
4 tbs soy sauce
3 tbs hoisin sauce
2 tsp hot chili oil
salt and pepper
2 tbs peanut oil

In a bowl combine the chicken and the 2 tbs soy sauce, 1 tsp salt, and just a little black pepper.  Then add 1 tbs of cornstarch toss with the chicken.  Allow the chicken to marinate for 30 minutes.  Then in a wok over a high flame add the oil then the chicken.  Cook the chicken unitl it turns opaque.  Then add the onions and 2 tbs of soy sauce.  Cook for about 3-4 minutes until the onions start to soften.  Then stir in the hoisin sauce and the hot chili oil.  Cook for one additional minute. 

Serve over a bed of fried maifun noodles.  This recipe works great with beef too.  Enjoy!
