Recipe Of Chinese Almond Chicken

  • Chinese Almond Chicken
    Serves 4
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1/4 cup roasted slivered or sliced almonds
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken with the egg white, salt, and cornstarch. Stir until the cornstarch is fully dissolved. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small pot, bring about 1 quart of water to boil.  Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the water. Add the chicken, and blanch for 1 minute, until the chicken is white on the outside but not cooked through. Drain the chicken well and set aside.
  3. In a wok or large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped scallions and stir-fry briefly until aromatic, about 20 seconds. Add the chicken and frozen peas and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce and sherry and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle in the almonds and stir so they are well-coated with the sauce. Transfer to a plate and serve.
