Mongolian Chicken


If Mongolian beef is your go to when it comes to Chinese take-out, I challenge you to try this version made with chicken instead. The chicken is melt-in-your-mouth tender and requires no marinating time as beef would. Serve over rice.

  • 1 pound chicken breast tenderloins, cut into thin strips

  • ¼ cup cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon ginger puree

  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 4 green onions, chopped


  1. Place chicken strips and cornstarch in a large resealable plastic bag. Shake to coat.

  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown on the outside and juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. Whisk together garlic, ginger puree, Sriracha, sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Add mixture to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes.

  4. Return chicken to the skillet. Add green onions and toss to coat. Cook over medium-high until heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
