MOO GOO GAI PAN



Chinese food isn't something I make often but Gabe had a craving for Moo Goo Gai Pan.

Found the recipe on Pickled Plum .

Ingredients:

1 tbsp canola oil
½ pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced into thin bite size piece
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1½ cup button mushrooms, sliced in half
1½ cup snow peas
½ cup canned bamboo shoots
¼ cup canned water chestnuts
1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 2 tbsp water
ground white pepper

For the marinade:
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp cornstarch

For the sauce:
½ cup chicken stock
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
½ tsp sugar

1 tsp sesame oil

Directions:

Add ingredients for the marinade in a medium size bowl.Add chicken, mix well and let sit for 10 minutes.


In a  pan over medium high heat,  heat oil. Remove chicken from marinade and add to the pan. Cook the chicken  till it is cooked through. Transfer chicken on a plate and set aside.

In the same pan that you cooked the chicken, add garlic, mushrooms and snow peas.  Cook on medium high heat for 5 minutes.

Add bamboo shoots, chestnuts and chicken and cook for 2 minutes.

Add ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and stir. Combine sauce to the vegetable mixture. Add cornstarch and water  in a small dish and mix until well combined. Slowly add to the pan   until sauce thickens.


Turn the heat off, season to taste with ground white pepper and serve immediately.
