This stir fry is flavorful, colorful and simple.  Hoisin sauce can be found near the soy sauce at the grocery store, and is a great addition to many Asian inspired dishes.  If you are serving kids omit the the chili garlic sauce and add it at the table.
 
Chicken, Shiitake, and Broccoli Stir Fry
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 12 oz fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced (or 3 – 4 large dried mushrooms)
  • 1 pound chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Florets from 1 crown of broccoli (about 3 cups)
  • 5 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon chinese five spice powder

 If using dried mushrooms, place the mushrooms in a microwave safe bowl and cover with water. Microwave on high for 3 minutes and let mushrooms soak until ready to use. Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat sesame oil in a wok or large saute pan.  Add ginger, mushrooms, broccoli and onion.  Stir fry 5 minutes.  Move the vegetables to the outside of the pan and add the chicken to the center. Cook stirring frequently for about 10 minutes or until chicken is just cooked through.  If you like a lot of sauce add some of the mushroom soaking liquid now.  Add hoisin, chili sauce and five spice.  Cook about 2 minutes more and remove from heat.  Serve with hot steamed white or brown rice.
