slightly lighter, tons of flavor and really easy!  You are gonna love this!

Ingredients:

1 cup jasmine rice

1/4 cup cornstarch

200g  snow peas, trimmed

4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated and peeled

2 tablespoons light-brown sugar

2 tablespoons Gluten Free soy sauce

1 Tbsp. Sriracha hot sauce

2 birds eye peppers, diced very thin

2 large egg whites

Coarse salt and ground pepper

500g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 tablespoons canola oil

sesame seeds

sesame oil

 

Directions:

1. Cook rice according to instructions. In a large bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/2 cup cold water until smooth. Add snow peas, garlic, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, and birds eye peppers; toss to combine, and set aside.

2. In another bowl, whisk together egg whites, remaining 3 tablespoons cornstarch, 1 Tbsp Sriracha, salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken, and toss to coat.

3. In a large (stainless) skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Lift half the chicken from egg-white mixture, and add to skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until golden, 6 minutes or so. Transfer to a plate; repeat with remaining oil and chicken, and set aside (reserve skillet).

4. Add snow-pea mixture to skillet. Cover; cook until snow peas are tender and sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes. Return chicken to skillet; toss to coat. Serve with rice. Add sesame seeds and sesame oil to taste.

 

I made this quite spicy!  I loved it!  But if you can’t handle the spice, skip the birds-eye peppers (I also added some jalapeños!) and use something milder like pepper flakes instead.

 

  1. Hmmm. Looks delicious! Can’t wait to try later this week.

  2. This looks remarkably simple. Not as easy as ordering delivery, but almost certainly tastier. Somehow the jalapenos don’t seem to quite fit in with the constellation of flavors, but I’ve seen some hot chilis at the local Asian food store that would surely work.

    I’ll be trying this later in the week.

  3. So excited to have a great gluten free recipie for one of my favorite dishes! I might have to try this tonight :D

  4. This looks crazy good. Can’t wait to try it!
