Tender chicken morsels in an easy and delicious sauce made with fresh ginger and plum sauce. I use snow peas and mushrooms, but you can add whatever veggies you have on hand (and are a must for your stir fries)!

very delicious though I am glad we ended up not having light corn syrup on hand as the dish was sweet and a bit sauce heavy as it was. used zucchini and sugar snap peas instead of mushrooms and snow peas. will definitely have again!! Read More

Good. I found a similar recipe that calls for only 1/4 cup of corn syrup (or golden syrup) which seemed a much less scary quantity! It also uses water chestnuts instead of mushrooms. Read More

My DH made this for dinner the other night and it was really good - but even better the next day. We cut the recipe in half but used all the garlic more fresh ginger than called for (probably 1 tsp or so) and only 1/4 cup of corn syrup (glad we did or it would have been waaaay too sweet). The end result was tasty and healthy; we probably will turn to this recipe in future if we're looking for a chicken stir fry. Read More

My husband and I love this recipe. It is a regular meal in our house. I spice it up a little bit by adding a few shakes of red pepper flakes and I use a spicy plum sauce. I just use whatever veggies I have on hand. Thanks for the simple and tasty recipe! Read More

The only changes I made were to use brown sugar instead of corn syrup and I ended up having to add some water to thin out the sauce as it was too sticky and glutinous. I made this with a mushroom medley pack which included oyster chestnut crimini and white button mushrooms. It could do with a little kick of something spicy but otherwise this was decent. Thank you!

This had great flavours. The ginger and and plum sauce really work well together. All I did different was I added carrots and water chestnuts. I think next time I will try using flour instead of corn starch on the chicken it made it a bit thicker/sticky while cooking. I also added fresh garlic and green onions while cooking the chicken.
