  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.

    Heat 1 teaspoon each of the canola oil and sesame oil in a medium sauté pan over high. Add the ground chicken, breaking it into small pieces as you transfer it to the pan; cook, undisturbed, for 2 minutes or until the chicken is browned on one side.

    Break up the chicken into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon and stir to finish cooking. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

    Add the remaining canola oil to the pan and heat over high. Add the water chestnuts, mushrooms, and scallion whites and light greens. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until softened and browned.

    Return the chicken to the pan. Add the garlic, hoisin sauce, water, brown sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, cornstarch, and chili garlic sauce.
