The secret is in the sauce (hint: you’re going to need a lot of garlic). You don’t however, need a wok to make this Chinese take-out staple at home. This easy garlic chicken comes together fast—and all in one pan.

Ingredients

2
tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1
package (20 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1/2-inch strips

4

2
tablespoons rice vinegar
2
tablespoons cornstarch
2
cups cooked white rice

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and salt; cook 4 to 6 minutes without moving, until browned on first side. Stir; cook 1 to 3 minutes longer or until no longer pink in center. Using slotted spoon, transfer to medium bowl; set aside.

Tips  

For best results, pat chicken dry before adding to hot oil.

Short on time? Buy an 8-oz package of presliced mushrooms.
