Walnut Chicken with Sherry Sauce
This aromatic chicken dish with walnuts and sherry sauce is delicious served over rice.
1 tablespoon cold water
2 teaspoons cornstarch
3/4 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry (not cooking sherry)
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
of ground white pepper
TO COMPLETE THE RECIPE
3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
3 to 4 (1 pound) Gold'n Plump® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 2-inch by 1/2-inch strips
3 cups green beans in 2-inch pieces
3 green onions (both green and white parts), cut into 2-inch lengths
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon walnut oil
4 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish
To prepare the sauce, stir together the water and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in the remaining sauce ingredients; set aside.
Heat 2 teaspoons of the canola oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minute, or until it is lightly browned and thoroughly cooked.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil in the same pan. Add the green beans; cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes. Add the onions; stir for about 2 minutes or until the beans are crisp-tender.
Reduce the heat to medium. Stir the sauce and pour it over the vegetables, stirring gently for about 30 seconds or until it is thickened and clear. Reduce the heat to low; stir in the chicken, walnuts, and walnut oil.
Garnish the servings with parsley sprigs.
Walnut oil has a pleasant, nutty flavor and is used for flavoring rather than cooking. Because it turns rancid quickly, refrigerate after opening. It will keep for up to 3 months.
1 teaspoon jarred minced garlic may be substituted for fresh minced garlic.
