Chinese cooking...curry chicken

This dinner cooks up quite quickly and is very tasty...

You will need

  • 1/2 lb chicken breast cut into thin slices

Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes in 2 tsp soya sauce, 1 tsp wine (I use vermouth if there is not any leftover wine sitting around), 1/2 tsp sugar and 1 tsp cornstarch .

Next you will need

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 slices minced ginger
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/ medium onion sliced into 2 inch strips1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 bell pepper cut into 1 inch thin strips
  • cauliflower florets (enough for 2)
  • sugar snap peas (enough for 2)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp water

Heat wok or frying pan with oil, ginger, crushed red pepper, garlic and onion over high heat for 1 minute. Add chicken and stir fry for 1 1/2 minute. Add bell pepper and soup stock and cook for a minute then thicken with the cornstarch solution. Serve over rice with a salad. Quick dinner!
