Sweet peaches are combined with chicken and a tangy sauce in this simple stir-fry.
- 1 pound chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
- 2 large peaches (not overripe)
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (or peanut oil, divided)
- 2 cloves garlic (peeled and chopped)
- 1 tablespoon ginger (minced)
- 2 green onions (cut into 1-inch pieces)
- For the Marinade:
- 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon rice wine (or dry sherry)
- black pepper to taste
- 3 teaspoons cornstarch (divided)
- For the Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 2 teaspoons water
Cut the chicken into thin strips, place in a container and add the marinade ingredients - light soy sauce, rice wine or dry sherry, black pepper, and 2 teaspoons cornstarch, adding the cornstarch last. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
To prepare the sauce: in a small bowl, stir the liquid honey and lemon juice into the orange juice. In a separate small bowl, make a cornstarch "slurry" by combining 1 teaspoon cornstarch with 2 teaspoons water.
Cut the peaches into thin slices.
Heat a wok over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil, tilting the wok so that it swirls down the sides of the pan. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 - 15 seconds. Add the chicken, laying it flat in the pan. Let brown for about 30 seconds, then stir-fry the chicken until it turns white and is about 80 percent cooked. Remove the chicken, cleaning out the pan if needed.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the wok. Add the ginger, green onion, and peaches. Stir-fry for a minute, then add the sauce. Bring to a boil and pour in the cornstarch slurry, stirring to thicken. When the sauce turns glossy and has thickened, return the chicken to the pan. Heat everything through and serve.
