A very simple and fast rice dish,but also tasty. Sesame oil and soy sauce is a good addition to this.

Recipe #422004

Something quick for breakfast using leftover rice from the night before. My Ayi (Chinese for "aunt," home help in China) taught me this easy recipe. I never realized until now how simple and tasty fried rice could be.

Recipe #395659

Why order take-out? This is quick and easy and less greasy. Serve over white or fried rice. Adapted from "The Pleasure Is All Mine," by Suzanne Pirret. UPDATE: I made this after I posted the recipe and was not entirely happy with the sauce because although it tasted good, it did not look "right." So, I have added optional ingredients that I think improve the dish.

Recipe #383706

This is my kind of Gyudon, my family favorite. I have made it million times (literally). It is such a quick and simple recipe that can be fixed in no time. Even Dashi and Mirin are not required. The recipe is posted here for safe keeping. Hope you like it as much as I do.

This Americanized Chinese recipe is a fusion of two classic dishes- orange chicken and sesame chicken. I found it on an excellent blog, " Appetite for China". This recipe makes extra sauce (perfect for rice!).

I think everyone will enjoy this quick and delicious Sesame Chicken. Serve it over either brown or white rice with steamed broccoli.

An easy, quick and tasty meal for 1. At only 3.5 points this is a great dinner. I like to use a vegetable mix that has water chestnuts for the crunch. I usually serve this over steamed basmati rice. Taken from the WW Single Serves book. Australian measurements used.

Recipe #339319

I used to love going to this place called Wasabi and they had the best Chicken Katsu. This is the closest recipe to it. It is not majority reduced, but better than it was. You can also add some dried garlic or onion powder to the mix.The fry comes out perfectly crispy!

Recipe #300637

This dish is something my husband has been making for a long time but only waited until now, many years into our marriage, to make for me. Fast and delicious served with steamed or fried rice, last night we added Recipe #146178 for a decadent feast!

Recipe #299934

Recipe adapted from the "Help! My Apartment Has A Kitchen" cookbook. Super simple! Cooking time includes marinating time.

Recipe #281720

Loaded with vegetables this Asian beef noodle soup is also low in calories but full of flavor.

I make this with Shanghai Bok Choy, a smaller Bok Choy than the regular one with light green ribs rather than the white ribs. If you have Bok Choy in a Chinese restaurant, they tend to slice it lengthways and cook the whole thing at once. I decided to cook the ribs and leaves separately and accidentally came up with this recipe because I was distracted after adding the ribs. I found that by overcooking the ribs slightly, they take on an almost buttery flavour, a nice contrast to the freshness of the leaves. I make this with Easy Prep Vegetable Stock (Recipe #247153). One serving of this soup contains quite a lot of protein and is suitable for South Beach or Sure Slim weight loss programmes.

Simple fried rice recipe.

Recipe #249985

People always ask why my rice comes out perfectly, even though I don't use a rice cooker. Siu Siu Korzilius, my Chinese cooking teacher, taught me that the secret to flaky rice is in the washing. Rice must always be washed before it's cooked to remove the excess starch which keeps it from being sticky. For brown rice, follow these same instructions but add more water (to several inches over the rice) and cook three times as long.

Indonesian stir-fried carrot dish

Recipe #231540

A local restaurant serves a salad similar to this and after a lot of experimenting I came up with a pretty good imitation. I stop on the way home from work at the local Chinese restaurant to pick up the fried wonton strips. Don't let the number of ingredients scare you off as it assembles quickly and easily. You can make the dressing ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.

Quick, easy and satisfying. You can get the more expensive "Tenders" or just cut up 12 ozs of chicken breast.
