As you may have noticed, I am an Equal sweetener fan! As a zero calorie sweetener, it is a great alternative to sugar and there are so many delicious recipes found at the Equal Canada Facebook page.
Lately Equal Canada released a new product: The Yellow Canister. I’ve heard such great things about this package: wide opening that makes it easy to scoop, a tight lid, etc. I am really eager to use it in my recipes. For Valentine’s Day, I prepared great Hearth shaped chocolate chip cookies using Equal Products. But I did not have the chance to use the Yellow canister. It was not available in my local Wal-Mart. Eager to test this new package, I decided to head to another Wal-Mart store.
Before going out shopping, I chose a recipe from Equal Facebook page. This week’s recipe is : Asian Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry! Why I chose it? Because it is really easy and takes 15 minutes to prepare! I am always looking for easy recipes, that contain lots of vegetables and ready in less than 30 minutes!
Unfortunately, I did not find the Yellow Canister in the Wal-Mart store! It seems like it is not popular in my town! You can take a look at my shopping experience in this Google+ album. The only Equal Canada products available in the store were the Equal Spoonful and the Equal Packets. I bought both packages.
For the purpose of the recipe, I went with the Equal spoonful. It will be easier to use than the packets.
Asian Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry
Here what you need for this recipe:
- 6 tablespoons prepared hoisin sauce
- 3 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons Equal® Spoonful or Granulated*( May substitute 3 packets Equal sweetener)
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 (3 oz.) package any flavor ramen noodle soup mix
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 3 cups broccoli florets
- 1/2 cup baby carrots. You can replace it with red bell pepper.
- 1/3 cup sliced green onions
- 1 (8 oz.) can sliced water chestnuts, drained (I did not use it in this recipe as my kids don’t like them).
- 1/2 cup baby corn (optional)
Now let’s make it:
For the sauce: combine all the ingredients and set aside. The Equal spoonful was easy to use.
- Cook the noodles as per the instructions and keep warm
- Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a medium large skillet. Cook chicken for 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove from skillet.
- Add another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add broccoli and carrots for few minutes then add onions. Cook for another 2 minutes. Add the chicken and stir
- Stir in cooked noodles, add sauce and mix often. Heat until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
Everybody enjoyed this recipe! The kids ate all the vegetables! I will definitely prepare it again: easy to make and healthy. Thank you Equal for this great recipe.

Love this recipe will have to try it, I know what you mean about the canister I work in a wal-mart in Canada & have been after the Dept MGR to talk to her buyer to get it in, It has worked before on certain product. After all they want customers to shop there carry what the customer wants.
Okay did you use ready made hoisin sauce or made your own?
I’ve been looking for an easy recipe for launch and found your blog post! can’t wait to try this! 🙂

This looks so yummy! We love stir fry so I will have to give it a try.
That looks so good! I never really thought about people cooking with Equal. I figured it was used instead of sugar in coffee or tea but it never occured to me that you would want to substitute it in other things too.
I feel badly for you that you can’t find the canister, it is pretty awesome. But, you are making do with what is available and it looks awesome.
Thanks Pam! This will be my next mission: finding the Yellow Canister!! I would love to try it
That looks delicious. I love Asian food!
Thanks Ellen. It is so so good!!
