Panda Express Fire Cracker Chicken Recipe

Panda Express Fire Cracker Chicken Recipe

12 oz marinated chicken breast, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1/2 sweet onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp Ground Ginger (fresh is better if you have it)
2 tsp Crushed Red Chili Pepper
1 Tbsp Black Beans Sauce
1 tsp Mirin ~ Sweet Japanese Cooking Wine
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce
1 tsp Sriracha (hot chili sauce), optional if you like more heat
1 Tbsp Cornstarch Mix (equal parts cornstarch powder and water)
2 scallions, diced, as an optional topper for color

12 oz Chicken Breast, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 1/2 tsp Cornstarch
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Egg White
1 tsp Vegetable Oil
  1. Stir together vegetable oil, egg white, cornstarch and salt in a mixing bowl. Add chicken, and mix, making sure to coat all of the chicken with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes to marinate. PREP EVERYTHING ELSE while the meat marinates because the recipe goes together fast.

  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large wok (or non-stick skillet) over a high flame. Add marinated chicken and stir quickly, separating the meat and then cook for approximately 1 minute. Remove cooked chicken and drain well.

  3. Add onion, bell peppers, garlic, ginger, chili pepper and black beans into the heated skillet. Stir for 1 minute.

  4. Add cooked chicken, cooking wine, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, sriracha and cornstarch mix with water. Stir until the sauce boils and thickens. Add sesame oil and continue stirring until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and cook through, about 3-4 minutes. Place finished product on a dish and serve with brown rice.

I love Asian food, but it has been ages since I’ve been to a Panda Express. This chicken sound like it is right up my alley, I love spicy foods. I’m going to try this one out. Yum.
