My final recipe of the Blog Hop is below. It might sound odd, but it’s very tasty, I assure you. I’m looking forward to having it again soon.
3 teaspoons sugar
1/4 cup sherry
3 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 pound chicken tenders cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon water
1 medium cucumber (peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes, about 2 cups)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 scallions, sliced
Mix sugar with sherry, garlic and ground ginger. Marinate the chicken in this mixture for 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients. Remove chicken to a plate, reserving marinade. Sprinkle cornstarch over chicken and toss. Set aside. Mix hoisin sauce and water with marinade.
Heat sesame oil in wok or skillet over medium-high. Add chicken, leaving any liquid on the plate. Stir-fry 3 minutes. Add cucumber and stir-fry 2 minutes. Remove to a bowl. Add marinade to pan and cook 1 minute. Pour sauce over chicken and cucumbers; toss well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with scallions.
