Hoisin Chicken Stir-Fry



 This is a easy delicious dish; For this recipe you can use many different kinds of veggies, so get creative

What you need:
3 Tbs. vegetable or peanut oil
1 medium onion, cut in half and sliced
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 oz. snow peas, trimmed
Crushed red chile flakes
1 to 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger (or 1 tsp ginger spice)
1/3 cup hoisin sauce (recipe link below)
2 Tbs. water
1/3 cup dry-roasted peanuts or cashews(optional)

How to make it:
Heat 2 Tbs. of the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 to 3 min. Add the bell pepper and cook until both the pepper and onion are browned around the edges, 4 to 6 min. Remove the vegetables from the skillet; set aside. Pour the remaining 1 Tbs. oil in the skillet. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper, add it to the oil, and cook, stirring frequently, so that all sides brown, 2 to 3 min. Stir in the snow peas and sprinkle in some red chile flakes. Add the ginger, if using. Reduce the heat to medium low and stir in the hoisin sauce and water. Simmer for 1 min. to wilt the snow peas and finish cooking the chicken (don’t overcook it). Sprinkle with the peanuts or cashews and serve over rice.
