Stir-Fried Chicken with Green Beans

While I was shopping at Sprouts, I saw this beautiful green beans on sale.  I couldn't resist myself and bought some to cook this favorite dish of mine.  The trick of cooking green bean is you have to deep-fry it first, so that it would keep the crunch. 

So first, marinate the cut chicken breast with soy sauce, garlic powder, white pepper, rice wine, sesame oil and cornstarch.  Mix well and set aside.  Then, you deep-fry the green bean until it changed color, dish out and set aside.  After that, you heat up some oil in the wok, add in some diced garlic and the chicken and fry until cook through.  Add in the green beans and season with oyster sauce and premium dark soy sauce.  Mix well and serve hot on a plate.  Enjoy!

Egg Tart Pie

My girls loved Chinese egg tarts.  However, in order to eat egg tarts, we would have to drive up to Denver (about an hour plus away).  One can either order it in a Dim Sum restaurant or get it to go at some Chinese shops.  With my schedule right now, we don't have time to drive up to Denver that often, also when whether permitting, usually I don't planning to drive up there when it will be snowing or extremely cold.

Hence, I figured I could make it into a pie, cut down on the time and give my girls a quick fix.  Thus, this lazy version of the egg tart pie is created.

Stir-fried Black Bean Cutterfish with Celery

I loved cutterfish.  I will buy some frozen cutterfish when I am in the Asian supermarket because it is easy to defroze and it tastes really delicious.  I made this dish easily with some organic celery and the ready made bottled chili in black bean sauce and bottled hot chili paste with peanuts.  My girls enjoyed this dish too even for my younger girl who doesn't like spicy food.
