A Five Minute Chicken August 29, 2007

Posted by Jim Berkin in Cooking, Food.

No, no, not another term for hillbilly speed dating! Another recipe I literally threw together the other night!

First, I cut up a half a chicken breast into 1 inch medallions, and marinated it for a half an hour in a tablespoon of soy sauce and about a teaspoon of fresh minced ginger.

Then, I stir fried it in a hot wok while I cooked a single packet of ramen noodles. The noodles take 3 minutes to cook, and it turned out that starting the burner to boil that water at the same time as the chicken went into the wok was perfect timing. I threw out the seasoning packet, it’s all salt anyway so who cares? Strained the noodles, returned them to their pot, added a tablespoon of soy sauce, a tablespoon of sherry wine and about a half teaspoon of hot chili paste and mixed up the noodles as the chicken finished.

Added the noodle mix to the chicken in the wok, mixed them together, hit it with a little more soy sauce, sesame oil, and then transferred it to a small bowl. Sprinkled some chopped green onion on top, and it was DAMN GOOD STUFF.

I was thinking that some shredded carrot, sliced mushroom & broccoli florets stir-fried with the chicken would also mix in nicely next time. Maybe some bamboo shoots or water chestnuts. I know this is not a true & traditional lo mein recipe, I really don’t know what to call it, except DAMN GOOD.

Easy, cheap and fast! Everything I look for in a woman, but have to settle for in dinner. Alas!
