Stir-Fried Snow Peas

by

Yield: Serves 4-6.

Millie marinates the chicken in egg white for an hour to help keep the meat juicy when it is cooked. Sometimes she substitutes tofu for the chicken, browning it in a wok.

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast, boned and skinned, cut into very thin strips
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh snow peas or sugar snap peas, stemmed
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cooking wine
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions:

Marinate chicken slivers in egg white for 1 hour. Heat oil hot (375 degrees F in an electric wok or skillet) and quickly stir-fry chicken slivers about 2 minutes. Lift out of oil into a dish and cover. If necessary add another tablespoon of oil and heat the skillet again. Put in the snow peas and mushrooms, and stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes, then add sugar, salt, wine, and 1 cup of the broth. Bring to a boil and add cornstarch dissolved in remaining 1/2 cup broth. Boil again, add chicken, and serve.
