Cooking MethodSkillet


  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 x 2 inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, finely minced
  • 3 green onions, including some of the tops, cut into 1 inch slivers
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. For the marinade, combine soy sauce, cornstarch, and chicken in a small bowl. Mix very well to completely coat the chicken with marinade.

  2. For the cooking sauce, combine soy sauce, rice wine, rice vinegar, and sesame oil in another small bowl. Set aside.

  3. Place a wok or nonstick, wide deep skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, swirling until the oil shimmers. Add the chicken and toss over high heat, stirring constantly until chicken is opaque, about 2 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan, and add the remaining oil.

  4. Stir fry the garlic, ginger, green onion, and pepper flakes until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the sauce mixture and the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture begins to boil. Return chicken to the pan, cook and stir one more minute until sauce is thickened.

  5. Serve over white rice and garnish with slivers of green onion tops.
