Stir-fry a la Sophie!
Everybody loves a good stir-fry :)
(this fed 6 hungry people)
noodles (we used egg noodles but you can use any type u feel like)
4 chicken breasts
2 small cabbages
small fistful of raw ginger
small head of broccoli
2 cloves garlic
(ay other yummy things you feel like adding)
for the sauce:
black bean sauce
Old Brown Sherry
Step 1. Chop up all your veggies (we separated them into 2 piles...those that cooked quickly like the mushrooms and cabbage...and those that took longer like the carrots and peppers)
Step 2. Sauté the chicken breasts in a little Olive Oil and add the ginger & onion to the mix. Once browned remove from heat and put aside.
Step 3. Now the fun part, making the sauce :) In a bowl, add some sesame oil, sherry, black bean sauce & Maizena (this thickens it up nicely) and stir. Adjust according to taste.
Step 4. Soak the noodles in boiling water for +-10 minutes (just check with the instructions on the packet if your using any other type of noodles). *have a bite of cupcake if your feeling peckish*
Step 4. Place the pan with the chicken back onto heat, and after a minute or 2 of reheating, slowly add the veggies. Add a few drops of water to moisten the mixture. Then add the noodles and finally the sauce.
Step 5. Mix and serve with chop sticks! Yum Yum!
