    This is the quickest, easiest and best way to make stir fried chicken. The ingredients are a basic combination of coconut oil, garlic, ginger and hoisin sauce.

    Serves: 4 

    • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    • 5cm piece fresh ginger
    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons crushed garlic
    • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Slice the chicken breasts into strips across the grain and set aside. Peel and grate the ginger and set aside.
    2. Heat the coconut oil in a wok over medium-high heat until the oil is melted and hot. Stir in the ginger and garlic and cook and stir for about 20 seconds to release the flavour. Toss the chicken strips into the hot oil and scoop the hoisin sauce over the chicken. Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes until the sauce coats the chicken and the meat is no longer pink inside.

    This was so.... yummy! I made sure to put this in my recipes. I doubled the recipe and it served 4 adults and 4 children. I took julienned carrots and sauteed them in the same mixture of coconut oil, garlic and ginger until they were soft but still a little crispy. Then I added a bag of frozen veggies (red pepper, green pepper and onions) to the carrots then added more hoisin sauce. When the veggies heated up I put the chicken in and mixed it all up. We had this on top of rice and it was delicious! I will be making this again soon.  -  23 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Servings are very small - I barely got three out of it. I added snow peas in, but I would recommend adding more vegetables to balance out the chicken. Other than that, the flavor is very good.  -  09 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great! I had to post a review because it was so good. I just bought virgin raw coconut oil & was looking for a recipe for it. I didn't have hoisin sauce so I substituted thick teryaki sauce & it was so good & so quick. This will def. become a 'go to' recipe for me. Thank you!  -  16 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
