Another dish which I chose to cook in line with my NY [new year 2014] resolution [that is to try yummy recipes shared by food bloggers]. This dish looks complicated with quite a number of ingredients but in fact it is a homey easy dish to cook. Thanks to Lena for sharing this recipe [here] which I happened to see it recently. I wouldn't have seen this recipe on Christmas Day 2013 [cos' this day was the saddest and devastating day in my life - the day I lost my youngest brother].
Very tasty chicken dish with DOM. As Lena says, you wouldn't get drunk with it. I cooked a small portion for 2 using boneless chicken thigh. Here, I didn't follow the actual recipe [see photo for the ingredients I used], so for the actual please visit Lena's blog [Frozen Wings].
2 boneless chicken thigh - cut bite size pieces
a few slices of ginger
some finely shredded ginger
1 tbsp wolfberries [kei chee]
a few red dates
1 dried mushroom - soaked and sliced
a piece of black fungus - soaked and cut strips
light soy sauce, salt and pepper taste
water and Dom Benedictine [depends on how much gravy you want for the dish]
- Heat sesame oil in wok, saute shredded ginger until golden brown. Dish up and set aside.
- Using the remaining sesame oil, saute ginger slices until fragrant, add in mushrooms, black fungus, red dates and chicken. Stir fry for a while.
- Add in light soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir fry and add in water and DOM. Bring to boil and let chicken cook.
- Lastly add in wolfberries, taste to adjust seasoning. Dish out on serving plate, garnish with fried ginger and chopped spring onions.
