  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs , beaten
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts , or 1 lb (500 g) pork loin
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger

  • 1 red sweet pepper , thinly sliced
  • 1 cup snow peas , trimmed and sliced in half on the diagonal
  • 12 small shiitake mushrooms , or button mushrooms, stems removed and thinly sliced

  • In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, hoisin and stock; set aside. Heat 2 tsp (10 mL) oil in a wok, or large non-stick skillet, over medium high. Add eggs; stir often to scramble, 1-2 minutes. Scrape into small bowl and set aside.
  • Slice chicken into thin strips 1⁄2 in (1 cm) thick. Season with generous pinches of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil in the same skillet over medium high. Cook chicken, tossing often, until cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil to skillet. Add garlic, ginger and green onion, and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add pepper, snow peas and mushrooms, and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes longer. Return chicken and egg to the skillet, along with rice and soy sauce mixture. Stir well.
  • Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring often, until well combined and piping hot, about 5 minutes. Taste and add more salt or soy sauce to taste.
