How to Make Chicken with Bean sprouts

  • Thinly shred the chicken and mix it with a pinch of salt, the egg white and corn flour paste.
  • Heat the oil in a preheated wok and stir-fry the chicken for about one minute, stirring to separate the shreds. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  • Pour off the oil, leaving about two table spoons on the wok.
  • Add all the vegetables except the bean sprouts and stir-fry for about 2 minutes, then add the bean sprouts and stir for a few seconds.
  • Return the chicken to the wok with the remaining salt, sugar, soy sauce and wine.
  • Blend well and add the stock or water.
  • Sprinkle with the sesame oil and serve at once.
