    Serves: 4 

    • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into thin strips
    • 1 tablespoon cornflour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced

    1. Toss the strips of chicken breast with the cornflour in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with the sesame oil and toss until evenly mixed.
    2. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frypan over high heat. Stir in the chicken and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Stir in the snow pea sprouts just until wilted; pour in the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Cook and stir a few minutes until the chicken stock has thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    I really had to think about if this was 3 stars or 4. I am giving it 4 stars because - although it was bland - I knew it would be by looking at the ingredients. The sesame oil in the chicken is excellent - I would double it next time. It really doesn't need the 3/4 Cup broth - as the Pea Shoots wilt quickly (like spinach) and release a lot of water. If I were to make this again - I would add more sesame oil to the chicken along with some garlic chili paste, also fresh ginger along with the garlic - add no or just a tiny bit of broth or water - a pinch of salt or soy sauce and a pinch of sugar to bring out the flavors.  -  28 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am one of those annoying people that rate a recipe, even though not following the recipe exactly. I always read reviews first, just to find out what others think of this recipe and I used suggestions. I doubled the amount of sesame oil, and am glad I did because it wasn't super strong and I love the flavor of sesame oil. I also added 3 cloves more garlic, another bunch of pea shoots, used homemade veggie broth in lieu of the chicken broth, half a small onion diced, some ginger, soy sauce, some sherry, and a bit of sucanet to sweeten it up (I don't use regular sugar - only Sucanet which is also knows as Rapidura). I thought this was so delicious and I wouldn't hesitate to eat this again and again! I do think that the flavor would have been lacking, but I think it has great potential to add flavors that you enjoy. I also served this up with Lundberg Wild Blend (a combination of long grain brown rice, sweet brown rice, Wehani, Black Japonica, and Wild Rice). I would have used another rice (Brown Basmati is my preferred) however the one I used needed to be used up. Really, you should try this it is FANTASTIC!  -  11 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is fantastic! Used local organic hydroponic pea shoots. It tastes just like takeout Chinese (but less greasy).  -  20 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
