Mongolian Chicken Recipe:


For the Mongolian Chicken:

  • 1 ¼ lbs (570g) chicken, thinly sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2–3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 8-10 wedges

For the Savory Sauce:

  • 1 ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water
  • 1–2 pinches red pepper flakes
  • 4 green onions, cut into 3/4-inch segments


  1. Place the chicken pieces and cornstarch in a large zipper bag. Seal it and shake to evenly coat the chicken with the cornstarch.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook until it turns a golden brown on both sides. If necessary, cook in batches, adding more oil as needed. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate.
  3. In the same skillet, heat another tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Cook the onion for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cooked onion to the plate with the chicken.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the sesame oil. Stir in the ginger and garlic, cooking for 1 minute while stirring constantly. Incorporate the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and brown sugar, stirring until well combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the chicken broth and cornstarch. Pour this mixture into the skillet and cook until the sauce slightly thickens. If you like a bit of heat, feel free to add the red pepper flakes.
  6. Return the cooked chicken and onions to the skillet. Top with the green onions and serve promptly.
