Mama Ma Lin Fried Chicken With Green Peppers

This is a dish that is supposed to be done with pork, but I nearly always use chicken. I think it’s nicer. But the first time I did it with chicken was because they didn’t have any pork in my shop at my little shop in Shanghai when I lived there. And I must have cooked the dish at least a 100 times with chicken. This is one of my kids favourite dish.

Ingredients for 4-5 persons if you eat it as a full meal.

500 gram chicken filet

100 gram salted peanuts with no shell

3 egg whites

80 gram of cornstarch (or 16 tsp.)

2 decilitre chicken stock

4 teaspoons rice wine

4 teaspoons Chinese soy sauce

1 scallion the white part

1-1,5 teaspoon of ginger powder

1-2 thinly sliced garlic

3 teaspoons of white sugar

1 green pepper seeded and cut into little pieces

0,5 -1 Chili flakes

1, Cut the chicken into little pieces.

2, Beat the egg whites and mix with 60 gram of corn starch.(12 teaspoons)

3, Add the chicken, mix it and set aside.

4,Mix the stock with 4 teaspoons of cornstarch, rice wine, soy sauce, scallions, ginger, garlic and sugar. Set aside.

5, Heat some vegetable oil in a wok or a big frying pan. Add the chicken and stir fry for a minute to seal in the juices.

6, Remove, drain and set aside.

7, Pour out the oil and reheat the wok.

8, Add the green peppers and fry them for a minute. And then you add the chicken.

9, Stir the sauce to blend it and add it to the wok.

10, Add the peanuts and chilli flakes.

11, Let it all boil until the chicken is done.

Remove and serve as a dish with noodles.

Or serve it as one of many dishes.

Enjoy!
