Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the angel hair pasta, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of peanut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, then add chicken breast. Cook and stir chicken until no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes; set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of peanut oil over medium-high heat and mix in carrots, celery, and green onion. Cook and stir until tender yet still crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Mix in Chinese black bean and garlic sauce; cook and stir for another minute. In a separate bowl, mix chicken broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch; add sesame oil. Pour mixture over vegetables and simmer until thickened. Toss in drained pasta, stirring until well-coated and heated through.

Really nice versatile recipe. My one caveat was not needing even close to the whole box of pasta, I think even 1/2 a box would have been plenty. My 3 kids ate this with no problem. Very nice weeknight recipe, comes together very quickly. I also used pasta water to thicken sauce instead of cornstarch. Thanks for an easy and good recipe.

A tasty and easy dish. I love veggies so added fresh sliced mushrooms, white onion & green bell pepper. I sliced my carrot as opposed to shredding them, cooked them a bit longer than the other veggies. I used linguine as I was out of Angel hair pasta. Also did not have Chinese black bean and garlic sauce, so just tossed in approximately 3 tsp of chopped garlic. I marinated the chicken in Teriyaki sauce prior to cooking. I only used half the amount of pasta called for, but the same amount of broth. This ratio of broth to pasta was perfect. I will make this recipe again with the following changes double the amount of sauce, add a larger variety of veggies, use Teriyaki chicken & chopped garlic. Overall, a lovely basic recipe.

We really liked this. I think the black bean garlic sauce added a depth of flavor to the dish beyond the soy sauce and sesame oil. Mine was a little salty but that was my fault.I used chicken bouillon instead of broth and then added more soy sauce.I cooked up the whole box of pasta but did not use it all, I think 3/4 of a box was plenty. I also marinated the chicken in soy sauce and a little rice wine vinagar but I am sure it would have been fine without it.Will make again.
