“Hope this helps! Tender chicken, vegetables, and fried almonds, bathed in a soy based sauce, tastes just like a Chinese restaurant favorite.” - by MELANIEB211
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Mix the soy sauce, salt, cornstarch, and sherry in a large bowl. Stir in chicken; cover and refrigerate.
- Heat 1 1/2 cups of the peanut oil in a large, deep skillet. Fry almonds in the oil until golden, about 1 minute. Drain fried almonds on a paper towel.
- Drain all but 3 tablespoons of oil from the skillet. Stir in the mushrooms, bamboo shoots, celery, onion, and water chestnuts. Cook and stir vegetables for 1 minute. Remove from skillet.
- Heat 1/4 cup oil in the skillet. Cook and stir the marinated chicken in hot oil until no longer pink in the center, and the juices run clear, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in cooked vegetables, chicken stock, and reserved soy sauce mixture; simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in fried almonds before serving.

"I am always in search of a good recipe for Chinese food, but this one is disappointing. It totally lacks flavor, and the proportions aren't right. It needs less chicken, less oil, and more vegetable..." See mores and seasonings. The fried almonds were okay, but I think some other nut (like cashews) would have provided more flavor. I won't be making this again; it needs more than just a few alterations."
"I think this is a great recipe! We get so used to the artificial, additive/preservative-laden junk served in restaurants that we forget what real, fresh food tastes like! The second time I made it, I ..." See moredid cut down on the chicken a bit, used less oil as well as a healthier oil and added some broccoli, carrots, garlic and more onion--delicious!"
"I was very disappointed in this receipe. The only change I made was no sherry because I did not have any. I used chicken broth. The receipe says to also use the soya sauce at the end, yet there is no..." See more other soya except that which was used in the marinade and I would not use that. The indgrideants tasted good but it had no flavour as there are no herbs or spices. I will try to doctor it and make it again."
