Anyway, I've always tried making my own at home, and it never comes remotely close to Kam Luang Kitchen a few blocks away. While this recipe from It's Melissa's Kitchen still wasn't there, it was probably the closest I've ever come.
I used broccoli instead of peppers, and I also threw in a can of mushrooms. Oh, I also added chicken broth to make more sauce. Next time, I will do two things: use thin-sliced chicken, and double the ingredients for the sauce. I love extra sauce!
Ryan ate it too, and he's been picky lately. So this meal scores extra points. :)
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total), cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
- 1/4 cup soy sauce, divided
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 small red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I used broccoli.)
- 1 onion, peeled and very coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup roasted peanuts (I omitted.)
Combine chicken and 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce. Chill 30 minutes. In small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch, crushed red pepper, and water. In wok or large skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add reserved chicken mixture and garlic and stir-fry 3-4 minutes or until brown. Add bell pepper and onion and stir-fry 3 minutes. add cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Add peanuts and toss. Serve over rice.
