Moo Goo Gai Pan II Recipe


Snow peas, bok choy, and water chestnuts join chicken in this take-out favorite.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ¼ pound snow peas
  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • ¼ pound sliced bok choy
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • ¾ cup skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon white sugar
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, snow peas, water chestnuts, and bok choy; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the wok and wipe the wok clean.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the wok. Stir in the garlic and ginger; cook a few seconds until the garlic begins to turn golden brown. Stir in the chicken and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the wine, sugar, and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and stir into the simmering sauce. Once the sauce returns to a simmer, stir until thick and clear, about 30 seconds. Return the vegetables to the wok and toss until hot and coated with the sauce.
