Recipe: Sweet and sour chicken with plums

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate juice (or pineapple juice)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 unpeeled firm, sweet plums, cut into chunks
  • 1 large stalk celery, sliced
  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • salt and pepper

 

Directions
1  In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, sugar, vinegar, pomegranate or pineapple juice, and soy sauce; set aside.


Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the plums, celery, and scallions and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the chicken, five-spice powder, salt, and pepper.


3 Stir and cook until the chicken is beginning to brown, another 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat and add the sauce. Stir until it thickens, another minute or so. Serve with steamed rice.

Serves: 4
