- 3 cups rice (cooked)
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 pound chicken (cut into 1 inch cubes)
- 4 nectarines (smalls, peeled, pitted, cut into pieces)
- 1 mango (peeled, pitted, cut into cubes)
- 1 carrot (peeled and thinly sliced)
- 4 inches green onions (cut into 1-2 lengths)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger (minced)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- Prepare rice as package directs.
- While rice is cooking, begin to prepare the sauce.
- To a 2 quart sauce pot over a medium heat, add nectarine pieces and a scant amount of water. Just enough water to stop fruit from sticking to bottom as it heats. Allow the fruit to break down, stirring occasionally.
- The nectarine will take some time to break down, so while it’s busy doing its thing, heat small amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan.
- Mix flour, cornstarch, salt, egg and water in a bowl until smooth. Stir in chicken pieces until they are well coated in batter.
- Add chicken, piece by piece, to frying pan and allow to cook until lightly brown on both sides.
- Remove chicken to paper towel to drain.
- Back to the nectarine, which should be breaking down by now. When fruit mashes easily beneath spoon, (like an over boiled potato), mash the fruit to create a pulpy puree.
- Measure nectarine puree, add enough water to make a full cup. Return to sauce pot.
- To the nectarine puree, add carrots, green onion, garlic, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and a dash of salt and pepper. Stir, cover and allow to cook over medium heat until carrots are crisp-tender.
- Add chicken and mango pieces. Stir to coat and allow to cook for a minute or so, just to reheat the chicken but long enough not let the mango break apart.
- Serve over rice and top with chow mien noodles.
