Asian Fusion Chicken

Standard

OK so believe me I know how pretentious that name sounds.  We just recently moved to Kansas City from California and everything in the Bay area is Fusion this, Fusion that….. It is all over the food world when you don’t have a pigeon hole to stick something we call it Fusion.  I could call this, it was at the end of paycheck and I did not have all the ingredients to make either Pad Thai or Chop Suey so I made this.  Somehow I don’t think you would respond to that so well. Asian Fusion it is!! This is the latest installment on my World Tour of Chicken Dishes!  If you like Pad Thai, and you like Chop Suey, or if you like one but not the other, I promise you will Love this!

For the Sauce

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup chicken broth
3 tbs peanut butter
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs brown sugar ( I use the Splenda Blend)
2 tsp Asian chili sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil

1 pound ground Chicken
1/4 red onion chopped
3 garlic cloves chopped
salt and pepper
1 tsp ginger powder
1/2 can water chestnuts chopped
1 bag of frozen chop suey vegetables or any other Asian vegetable blend

In a mixing bow combine all the sauce ingredients and cover and set aside. Do not chill.  In a hot wok or skillet, heat 1 tbs canola oil add onion and garlic.  Always add onion and cook for a few seconds before adding garlic. Garlic is tender and the pieces are small and will burn easy if you throw them in first.  Cook for 1-2 min.  Remove from pan and reserve.  Season the ground chicken with salt and pepper and ginger power and cook in the hot wok till crumbled and cooked all the way through.  Add the onions and the garlic back in and add the frozen vegetables.  Pour the sauce mixture over all and mix till all is coated. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer and cover.  Cook 7-10 min till vegetables are done, stirring occasionally.
Asian Fusion without the pretension served up on a platter!

About the plaid and paisley kitchen

I am just like you, a modern woman juggling life, family, work, and always struggling to find time to work on my hobbies. As the wife of a very picky eater with very definitive likes and dislikes, (Mostly misconceptions of what something may taste like.) I can honestly say that every recipe on here is “Stevie Approved!” I am the Great-Granddaughter of German immigrants and I learned to cook in my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. As I grew and gained experience in my own kitchen I took the lessons I learned and branched out and started new traditions mixed with Old World styling. I was raised by a very artistic and talented mother, and if I inherited just a tad of her abilities then I consider myself very lucky. In primary and secondary schooling I was always heavily involved in art and drama. I still have a great passion for the theater. I think that a household should have a healthy dose of dramatic flair. I feel that food should be prepared with quality and fresh ingredients, and that meals should be served with love. I believe a home should be comfortable and beautiful at the same time, and that an organized home is a happy home!
