The Easy Hunan Chicken Recipe

by Soumyadip c. Tasty Fitness Recipes
Beautifully caramelized, Tender and juicy pieces of flavored pieces of Hunan chicken tossed with vegetables, ginger and garlic roasted over high heat. This chicken is not only healthy but also delicious but and light. This Hunan style chicken recipe is different from westernized Hunan recipes, which is mostly overly sweet, fatty, and gloppy.
My co-workers and I loved the restaurant style Easy Hunan Chicken Recipe. So simple, delicious and mouthwatering. Tender pieces of chicken breast, stir-fried with black fungus, carrot, broccoli, in a light brown sauce.
Although the authentic version uses dry stir fry (very little sauce), I like much sauce version and it also works well with steamed rice. The sauce will taste very similar to a basic brown sauce, but I used sesame oil and oyster sauce to add more bit of sweetness and umami. It tasted SO Delicious that I keep on increasing the amount of sauce whenever i make.
