Stir-Fried Chicken With Candied Pecans

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 463


1/2 cup sweet and sour sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese chili paste, or bottled hot sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/4 pounds chicken tenders
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic, fresh or jarred organic
1 tablespoon minced ginger, fresh or jarred
1 (10-ounce) bag broccoli slaw
1 cup candied pecans


Mix the sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce, chili paste, and chicken broth in a bowl set aside. Remove the thick end of the tendon that runs through the chicken tenders, and cut each tender into 2 or 3 pieces.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add half the chicken and stir-fry until browned. Remove and reserve. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil, and stir-fry the rest of the chicken. Add to the first batch of chicken.

Add the garlic, ginger, and broccoli slaw to the pan and stir-fry until barely tender, about 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan, along with any juices that have collected around it. Add the sauce mixture and stir-fry until everything is coated with sauce. Serve topped with the candied pecans.
