  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced across the grain in 1/4-inch strips
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 package (16 oz) stir-fry vegetables
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 Tbsp peeled minced fresh ginger
  • 8 Tbsp sesame garlic sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted


Place chicken in a small bowl. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, working in with hands until water is absorbed into chicken. Sprinkle cornstarch over chicken and work in with hands to coat all pieces.

Blanch vegetables in boiling water until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes; drain and set aside. Heat nonstick wok or large nonstick skillet on high for 2 minutes. Add vegetable oil and swirl to coat pan (oil should smoke slightly).

Add chicken, garlic, and ginger. Stir fry 3 minutes. Add sesame garlic sauce. Stir fry 2 minutes. Add pepper and vegetables; stir fry to heat through, 30 seconds.

Remove from pan. Garnish with sesame seeds.
