Chicken Stir Fry with Tahini Sauce
This is a different twist on the sauce for your typical stir fry using a little tahini to thicken and flavor the sauce. As with any stir fry this is a chance to clean out the refrigerator and that is just what I did. For this version I did add some leftover chicken sausage as well. Feel free to add everything you need to clean out and for sure try this sauce, it was delicious.
½ Yellow onion, sliced
½ Red pepper, sliced
½ Jalapeno, seeded and sliced
1 Zucchini, chopped
1 Yellow squash, chopped
1 tsp. Five spice powder
Salt and pepper
1 lb. Chicken tenders, cut in ½ inch pieces
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. Tahini
Heat oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the onion, red pepper, and jalapeno and cook until the peppers begin to soften. Add the green beans and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the zucchini and squash and cook for about 2 minutes. Season with five spice, salt and pepper. Remove to a serving bowl.
Add olive oil and heat. Add the chicken and cook until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper. Remove to the serving bowl.
Pour soy sauce in the hot pan and scrape the bottom. Use as much soy as you like. Add the Worcestershire and the tahini. Stir until it looks like peanut butter. If it gets too thick add a little more soy. Add everything back to the pan or wok and combine. Serve
