Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

hoisin chicken stir fry

this chicken stir fry recipe come from an older issue of fine cooking.  it uses store bought hoisin sauce which makes the recipe quick and easy.

substitutes for the vegetables include:  mushroom, carrots, or broccoli.  when served on a small amount of rice, the recipe duplicates an entree from any Asian restaurant.

use 2 tablespoons of canola oil and add 1 chopped white onion, cooking for 2-3 minutes.

add one small chopped red bell pepper, which has been seeded, cored and chopped.  saute for 4-6 minutes more.  then add one boneless chicken breast which has been cubed.  sprinkle the chicken with salt and a few red pepper flakes to taste.  stir in prepared fresh snow peas, which have been trimmed. 

reduce the heat and stir in 1/2 cup hoisin sauce to glaze the finished dish.  heat about 1 more minute and serve on rice.  to finish the dish, sprinkle with chopped cashews or peanuts to taste for crunch.

this recipe, with one chicken breast, will serve two people.  the amounts can be increased to serve for guests.
