Hoisin Chicken Rice Bowls

from melskitchencafe.com

Serves 4

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 large red pepper, diced small

1 10-ounce package baby portebello mushrooms, diced small

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 average-sized boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced small

1 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained, diced small

2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce (you can find this by the soy sauce)

4 tablespoons hoisin sauce

3 cups of hot cooked rice

romaine lettuce leaves

sesame seeds

scallions, thinly sliced

Heat oil over medium high heat in a large saute pan. Add red pepper and mushrooms and saute for 5 – 6 minutes until tender. Add garlic and saute an additional minute. Add chicken to pan and cook for 6 – 8 minutes or until cooked through. Stir chicken and red pepper mixture occasionally while it cooks. Add water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce and hoisin sauce and stir to coat the chicken and vegetables. Continue cooking until heated through.

To serve, line a single serving size bowl with romaine leaves. Top with a large scoop of rice, some of the hoisin chicken, and a sprinkle of the sesame seeds and scallions.

Alternately, you can serve the hoisin chicken mixture wrapped in lettuce leaves or omit the lettuce leaves completely and serve the chicken over rice.
