What is Chicken with Garlic Sauce?

Chicken with Garlic Sauce is also known as Chinese Garlic Chicken or Chinese Chicken with Garlic Sauce. 

It is a delicious chicken stir-fry with a thick garlicky sauce. The sauce is super savory and has that unique taste and texture that get with all takeout dishes. 

This easy stir fry consists of chicken, beansprouts, spring onions/green onions, and plenty of garlic. 

The sauce is made with ingredients that are easy to find in your larger grocery store – Chicken broth, cornstarch, Chinese cooking wine (see below for more details), soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil.

Chinese Garlic Chicken Ingredients

Chicken: Chicken breast is perfect for this recipe; it cooks quickly and is tender and lean. Perfect for a stir fry!

Baking Soda: This is also known as bicarb of soda, bicarbonate of soda, and sodium bicarbonate. Don’t get it muddled with baking powder!

Spring onions/green onions: These add a unique and authentic Chinese taste to the dish. They are chopped into chunky lengths and are used as a vegetable and an aromatic.

Garlic: The garlic is the star of the show here, so it is well worth using fresh garlic and slicing it yourself. It will taste better.

Chicken Broth: Use a low sodium broth to avoid an overly salty sauce. It also wants to be cold so that the cornstarch dissolves smoothly without lumps. You can sub in veg broth.

Chinese Cooking Wine: Chinese Cooking Wine is also known as Chinese Rice Wine, Shaohsing Rice Cooking Wine, Shaoxing wine, or Shaoxing Cooking Wine. But don’t get it confused with rice wine vinegar; that will not taste good!!!! You can find it in most grocery stores in the Asian section, on Amazon, or your local Asian grocery store. If you can’t find Chinese Cooking Wine, just use dry sherry or sake.

Oyster Sauce: This is easy to find these days; most grocery stores will stock it near the soy sauce.

Cornstarch/Cornflour: This helps to thicken the sauce and give you that classic Chinese takeout sauce consistency. Without it, the sauce will be watery and thin. If you prefer a thinner sauce, you can add half the amount.

Here I prepare this by slicing 2 chicken breasts.

Chicken breast slices dipped in soya sauce and vinegar with garlic powder and black pepper give it a significant flavor and aroma while cooking. Then freshly chopped garlic with green chilies makes a perfect combination to saute chicken in light vegetable oil. I used capsicum and onion to neutralize the flavor with chicken but if you want you can add some more options.
