The Famous Stir Fried Chicken

Stir fried chicken is one of the most famous and sumptuous delights everyone loves to enjoy.  Recipes for stir fried chicken recipes are very common everywhere especially in the internet.  Aside from being cost-friendly, they are very simple to follow.  Chicken is versatile that it can be prepared in a variety of different styles.

To prepare a stir fried chicken recipe, the chicken is typically cut into small bite pieces which are then marinated with chicken broth or stock, blended with sherry, soy sauce, chili sauce and a thickener which is cornstarch.  The cornstarch is commonly used in marinades to allow the marinade to stick to the meat and retain its rich flavors.  Sufficient time is allowed to let the chicken absorb the marinade even at room temperature before it is thrown into the pan for stir frying.  Usually, this takes around fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on the volume of the chicken pieces.   

To add more flavors to the chicken when sautéed, the onions, garlic and ginger aromatics are heated in a wok or a large skillet on vegetable oil to produce the fragrance that distinctively provide added aroma to the chicken when fried.  As the chicken pieces are stir fried, the cook must observed the changing color of the chicken.  When the color changes from pink to light brown, we can add the sweet onions, peas, Chinese cabbage, and bell peppers plus the chicken broth stir to cook further the dish.   A homemade sauce mixture consisting of sugar, soy sauce, cornstarch and chicken broth can finally be added to the stir fried chicken to complete the dish when it is almost done with the vegetables.  We just wait for the sauce to bubble and thicken, and we are ready serve the dish.  Here is a simple chicken stir fried recipe that you can use for this holiday season.
