Singing Chicken

Low Carbohydrate Recipe

This is a Vietnamese dish, and is definitely for those who enjoy breathing fire. This dish will have you sweating halfway through the meal! Note: Cutting the chicken is easiest if the meat is half-frozen.


2 to 3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise into thin slices*
2 tablespoons Splenda
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 fresh jalapeno
3 red chilies, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
Guar or xanthan

Recipe Directions

Chicken Breast

Have the chicken sliced, the ingredients measured, the pepper minced and everything standing by and ready to go before starting to cook -- once you start stir-frying, this goes very quickly.

Put a wok or heavy skillet over high heat. Add the oil, let it heat for a minute or so, then add the ginger and garlic. Stir for one minute to flavor the oil. Add the chicken, and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the Splenda, soy sauce, fish sauce, white wine, jalapeno and pepper, stirring often, for 7 to 8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Thicken pan juices very slightly with guar or xanthan and serve.
