Plum & Chicken Stir-Fry
Although plum may not be a common partner to chicken, it provides a surprisingly delicious sweet and tangy flavor — particularly in a stir-fry. Not only is this stir-fry fast to prepare, it's loaded with healthful produce and chicken as well — making it an all-around great meal to serve family or friends.
FOR THE CHICKEN, WHISK:
FOR THE STIR-FRY, ADD:
For the chicken, whisk together broth, sherry, jam, soy sauce, vinegar, chili garlic sauce, five-spice powder, and cornstarch; add chicken and toss to coat.
Heat oil in wok over medium-high. Remove half the chicken from the marinade. Stir-fry chicken until brown, 2–3 minutes; transfer to a plate. Stir-fry remaining chicken, reserving marinade; transfer to plate. Remove wok from heat; coat with nonstick spray and return to heat.
For the stir-fry, add ginger; stir-fry 30 seconds. Add bok choy ribs and scallions; stir-fry two minutes. Add peas and bok choy leaves; stir-fry 2 minutes. Return chicken and reserved marinade to wok and heat until marinade thickens. Add sprouts and plums; stir-fry 1 minute. Top servings with peanuts.
After adding the cornstarch to the marinade, stir it well so the starch dissolves and doesn't clump.
Separate the bok choy ribs from the leaves — they'll be added to the stir-fry at different times.
Stir-fry the chicken in two batches, otherwise it will crowd the wok and not brown as nicely.
