Whenever our daughters come home from college, this is the dish they always request. My husband enjoys it so much I usually prepare it a couple time a month.


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned
  • 1 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, saute chicken in 1 tablespoon oil for 5-7 minutes or until juices run clear. Remove chicken and set aside. Saute celery, carrot and green pepper in remaining oil for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Return chicken to pan. Combine broth, soy sauce, salt if desired, cornstarch, red pepper flakes and hot pepper sauce; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute to thicken. Serve over rice if desired.
