Chicken Stir Fry with a Peanut Ginger Sauce Recipe & Marukan Gourmet Vinegar Prize Package

The other day I had a long discussion with my nephew about cooking. We laughed at the fact that I make dinner most every night and have been for a very long time, yet I have always been afraid to use any kind of soy sauce or rice vinegar. Unlike me, my nephew uses these ingredients all the time and explained that I should only use natural products with rich flavors and aromas. I then showed him a box I had received from Marukan Vinegar. As soon as he saw the logo he smiled and said I had a good product that these would be perfect for some of his favorite recipes. He opened the box to find a bottle of GENUINE BREWED Rice Vinegar, SEASONED GOURMET Rice Vinegar, and All Natural PONZU – Premium Soy Dressing with Sudachi Citrus. It was at this moment that he got up and took me to the kitchen to start my first experience with Marukan.

Producing rice vinegar with legendary taste and mildness takes time, Marukan Vinegars are slowly and naturally brewed, using traditional methods developed by over three centuries of experience by Japan’s finest artisans. The delicate aroma, rich flavor and mild taste of Marukan are all the result of this natural, slow-brewed process.

We put our minds together and decided to make a Chicken Stir Fry with a Ginger Peanut Sauce! Of course the girls heard us in the kitchen and had to help!

Chicken Stir Fry with a Ginger Peanut Sauce Ingredients –

The Sauce

  • 2 tbsp. Marukan PONZU – Premium Soy Dressing with Sudachi Citrus

The Stir-Fry

  • 2-3 chicken breasts sliced into strips

  • 2 carrots, flaked or julienned
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

Chicken Stir Fry Ingredient Prep

Sauce preparation:

This is very simple, especially with the help of my girls. Combine ingredients in a bowl. Whisk until smooth and evenly mixed. Set aside.

Stir Fry –

Add all the ingredients together except for the chicken, broccoli, and carrots. Mix well and add about half to the uncooked chicken.

In a 9″ frying pan, bring peanut oil to temperature over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for just a few minutes then add  carrots. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring continously. Fold in broccoli. Reduce heat to medium and add remaining ingredients. Stir. Simmer for six minutes or until broccoli can be split with a spatula, stirring occasionally.

I chose to also add in a lo mein noodle to the dish to make it a full meal.
