SZECHUAN STIR-FRY THIGHS

Serves 4

The woman in charge of supervising the entire Perdue recipe program, says that this is her personal favorite.

4 roaster boneless thigh cutlets

4 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil

1 cup carrots, cut into matchstick strips

1/2 cup cashews

1 teaspoon hot chili pepper, finely chopped, or to taste

1 clove garlic, minced

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup dry sherry

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Cut boneless thighs into strips (about 1/4″ x 2″). In a wok or large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Add chicken and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove chicken and reserve. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to wok and add carrots, cashews, chili pepper, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry 3 minutes until carrots just begin to soften. Return chicken to wok. In a small bowl blend together soy sauce, sherry and cornstarch. Add to wok and cook, stirring constantly, until sauce boils and thickens. Serve over hot cooked rice.
