Kay's House of Treats: Chicken Chowmein

Chicken Chowmein

So making full use of my parents being away for the weekend, I decided to do some more experimenting this  Sunday. Spent about all of Saturday evening thinking about what to make and finally settled on Spicy Chowmein & Ginger Wrapped Chicken in Rice (to be discussed in the next blog post). I am not a huge pasta fan (please don't hate me for that) because I think its just a bit too heavy but I absolutely love noodles; egg noodles, chowmein, rice noodles, pad thai, fusion desi noodles of sorts. The noodles turned out really good; loved the style of making the chicken since it cooked really quickly and had that slight crispness which makes it taste non home-madeish (I'm sure this is a made-up word, but I hope it conveys the meaning). However, I would have added a bit of black pepper as I think they just needed a slight kick. 
Hot & Spicy Chowmein

Chicken boneless -  1 cup (thinly sliced)
Salt 1 tsp (For Marinade) + ½ tsp (For Noodles)
Sugar ½ tsp (For Marinade) + ½ tsp (For Noodles)
Corn flour 1 tbsp 

Beaten Egg Half
White pepper ¼ tsp
Cabbage thinly sliced 2 cups
Capsicum 1 sliced
Egg noodles 1 packet (400-450 g) (I don't use the branded egg noodles; i always prefer the Chinese brand egg noodles since they taste better and they also cook much more faster)
Chili sauce 2 tbsp
Soya sauce 2 tbsp
Vinegar 1 tbsp
Crushed garlic 1 tsp
Onion 1 sliced
Carrot 1 thinly sliced
Spring onion leaves 2 inch long strips 1 cup
Oil ¼ cup
Ketchup ¼ cup

Marinate chicken with salt, white pepper, sugar, soya sauce, corn flour 1 tbsp, half beaten egg for 15 minutes.
 Heat ¼ cup oil. Fry crushed garlic till light golden. Add marinated chicken and saute for a few minutes (I personally like to cook chicken longer but 2-3 minutes should be enough). Once the water from the chicken has evaporated, add sliced onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the rest of the vegetables then add chili sauce, soya sauce, ketchup, vinegar,  salt and sugar. Mix well then add boiled noodles. Toss well then taste. In case something is lacking, adjust accordingly. Lastly add spring onion leaves and remove.
