Asian Carryout Noodles

1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta

1 teaspoon canola oil

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half – cut into bite-size pieces

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

2 leaves bok choy, diced

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons dry sherry

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 green onions, minced

1) In a large pot with boiling salted water cook angel hair pasta until al dente. Drain.
2) Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet heat canola and sesame oil over medium high heat. Saute onion and garlic until softened. Stir in chopped chicken, and cook until chicken browns and juices run clear. Stir in ginger, bok choy, chicken stock, sherry, soy sauce, and hoisin sauce. Reduce heat, and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
3) Toss pasta with chicken mixture until well coated. Season with salt. Serve warm sprinkled with minced green onions.

Hoisin sauce, also called Peking sauce, is a thick, reddish-brown sauce that is sweet and spicy, and widely used in Chinese cooking. It’s a mixture of soybeans, garlic, chile peppers and various spices. It can be found in Asian markets and many large supermarkets. Look in the Asian or ethnic section. If this item is not in stock at your local store, ask your grocer to special order it for you. Most grocers will be happy to do this for their customers.
