Do you realize that stir-fry dishes from Chinese take-out restaurants taste similar to each other ?. I tell you one secret: because they use the same seasoning sauce mixture for almost every dishes. It explains why stir-fried chicken with snow peas taste just exactly the same with stir-fried chicken with broccoli.

If you get sick of the same old stir-fry dishes, then try hoisin sauce chicken stir-fried. This is an extremerely tasty chicken stir-fry dish. Unlike common oyster sauce based Chinese stir-fry dishes, hoisin sause is used in this stir-fry. Hoisin sauce is a Chinese dipping sauce made of sweet potato, sugar, vinegar, soybean and other ingredients. This sauce is used for dipping and BBQ sauce but also to flavor the stir-fry dishes in Cantonese cooking.

Just like other stir-fry dishes, hoisin sauce chicken stir-fried is low in fat, low in sodium, simple and easy to fix but definitely not simple in taste. Its robust and bold in flavor. Definitely a must to try dish !.
