A quick and easy dish that is full of Asian flavor
Tales of the Dinner Belle
By Brenda Stanley
During the summer, I always look for quick and easy meals that don’t heat up the kitchen. This is one that can be made in one pan, takes only minutes to put together, but is full of Asian flavor. My chopped Asian chicken is perfect for leftover chicken or for store bought rotisserie chicken. This dish is super tasty and full of crunchy texture, and yet it takes only a few simple ingredients and a quick heat up on the stove and it’s ready to go. You can serve it with rice or lettuce leaves and you have a perfect weeknight meal that is satisfying and will keep you out of the kitchen and enjoying these beautiful summer days.

¼ cup water

In a large sauce pan, whisk together the hoisin, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat until sauce begins to thicken. Add the chicken, chestnuts, and green onion and cook until all is heated through. Serve with rice or over lettuce leaves if desired.
