4 servings


  • 1 (16 ounce) package angel hair pasta

  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil, divided

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 2 cups shredded carrots

  • 2 cups sliced celery

  • 6 green onions, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons Chinese black bean and garlic sauce

  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


  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.
