Mama Ma Lin Fried Chicken With Green Peppers

This is a dish that is supposed to be done with pork, but most of the time I use chicken instead. The first time I did it with chicken was because they didn’t have any pork in my little shop in Shanghai when I lived there. Since then I must have cooked the dish at least a 100 times with chicken, so I suppose we are just used to it… This is one of my kids favourite dishes.

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!

Beer can chicken at our friends place. The can has beer and herbs in it, and the chicken gets a nice flavour. When you put it on the grill, make  sure the lid is on. It takes 1-1,5 hour. And you can add some rub on the outside.

Per made a nice sauce made with some cream, syrup and some stock. And a salad and potatoes. 91C04C5C-5B0E-4213-B926-2ED3FC59581765825F02-48D5-40E6-8C22-C9DD8C49E0A5


Dinner at our place

We had some friends over for dinner, and Lars was in charge over the starter. Carpaccio, an old classic that we haven’t eaten for 10 Years. I wonder why, it is so nice!! He added parmesan, ruccola and olive oil. And lots of pepper. As a main, chicken in the owen with jus as they say in France.

Recipe for the chicken;

1 corn chicken (or as many as you like)              

Mix butter with crushed garlic, and put it under the skin of the chicken.  Salt and pepper all around.                                          

Put it into the owen for 45 minutes on 225 C, and then 30 more minutes on 175C. Make sure the chicken is totally cooked!

The “jus”

Simmer the chickens sauce with red wine, salt and pepper until it becomes a bit thick.

We served the meal with potatoes and sallad.

And the sallad on the side that was really really nice!!

Recipe for the sallad;

Make a vinaigrette first;                                

2 tbl spoons pumpkin seed oil
1/2 dl sake or mirin
1 1/2 tbl Spoon rice winegar
1/2 dl japanse soy sauce
1 1/4 dl olive oil
salt and pepper                                                

Mix it all really well

For the sallad;                                              

150 gram fresh haricots verts
4 apples that you peel and cut into pieces
2 shallots
3 table Spoons sugar
1 tbl spoon olive oil
1 tbl spoon butter
1 small bag spinach leafs  (70 g)
1 bag  mixed sallad (150 g)
2 dl walnuts

Mix the apple slices with the sugar. And fry them on medium heat in a mix of butter and olive oil until they are golden.

Mix the sallad with the vinaigrette. And add the fried apples last.
