  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons red curry paste
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion

Preparation

  1. Combine rice vinegar, brown sugar, lime juice, red curry paste, and crushed red pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes, turning once.
  2. Remove chicken from the bag, reserving marinade. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add chicken; stir-fry 4 minutes. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan. Add onion and carrot; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 3 minutes.
