  • 1 tomato

  • 1/2 large onion

  • 2 cups sliced button mushrooms

  • 1 cup green beans, sliced into thirds, or small broccoli florets

  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce

  • 1 tsp hot chili-garlic sauce

  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • vegetable oil


  • Slice tomato into small wedges and thinly slice onion. Prepare mushrooms and beans. In a small bowl, stir hoisin with chili-garlic sauce and ginger. Slice chicken into strips.

  • Lightly oil a large, non-stick frying pan and set over medium-high heat. When hot, add chicken and mushrooms. Stir-fry until chicken and mushrooms are golden-tinged, from 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Stir in hoisin mixture, then add tomato, onion and beans. Cover and stir occasionally until vegetables are tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Great with steamed sticky rice.
