Chili Chicken

Chili Chicken
(with ground chicken)
GrandBoy #3 spent the evening with us last week and we had 'walking tacos' made with ground chicken. 'Walking tacos' are a salad of taco meat, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, julienned cucumbers, mild salsa, et al, that are mixed well with crushed doritos. Each person is handed a package of doritos which is crushed in the bag. The chips are topped with taco ingredients and mixed well right in the bag. The idea is that each person is able to walk around and enjoy the bag of 'walking tacos'. It's a great on-the-go dinner that is fun to eat.

There were only three of us for dinner that day, so there was half a package of ground chicken left that I froze to use later. The entire package of ground chicken was browned with onions, garlic and tomatoes, and at that point half went into the 'walking tacos' and half was frozen.

Today, all I had to do was add the sauces, peppers, green onions and quickly stir-fry it for dinner.

½ lb. ground chicken
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 medium tomato, diced
6 cloves garlic, smashed, peeled & diced
1 medium onion, peeled & diced
1 Tbsp.rice wine
1 Tbsp. dark soy sauce (regular soy sauce is okay too)
1 Tbsp. sesame oil

1/4 tsp. sugar
2+ jalapeno peppers, sliced
2 stalks green onions,  cut in 1” lengths

  1. Mix chicken with rice wine, soy sauce & sesame oil and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Stir-fry onion & garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. 
  4. Add chicken & tomatoes and cook until browned, about 20 minutes. 
  5. Add sugar & peppers, stir well and simmer for 3 minutes.
  6. When sauce evaporates, garnish with green onions.
Serve over steamed rice.
