This is a very versatile and widely enjoyed pasta dish with chicken. It has an Asian influence with a very nice sesame flavor. I whipped it up one evening with a limited pantry and my little one named it. Joint collaboration on this one, folks! Oh yea, and the key is with the FRESH ginger.
Another entry for the "I got home late, but still want a great meal" category. You can make this faster than it would take to go out and get take-out. And it's delicious. This one is for 2, but can very easily be doubled.
This is an easy and impressive appetizer or light meal. Sometimes, to make things easier, I will buy pre-cooked or grilled chicken that you can find in the meat section of your market. The peanut sauce can be found in the international section, often called satay or panang peanut sauce. It can be quite spicy. Use pepper flakes to taste.
I got this recipe from McCormick. This recipe has a unique contrast of flavor, is healthy, uses ingredients that most people have on hand, and is so good! I have altered it a little from the original. I like to serve over rice with crunchy wonton strips on top (original recipe used wonton cups, no rice & served as an appetizer). I double the sauce when I make it because it's that good! I don't know of many asian resaurants that make a dish this great!
Fermented black beans are found in Asian markets and once you buy them, they last pretty much forever! Also called salted black beans, they're used in the black bean chicken you order from Chinese take-out and has a much different flavor than the Mexican type of black beans. From chef Fuchsia Dunlop with my addition of some red pepper for color! Also check out my review of Recipe#247607.
People love this sesame chicken. It tastes as close to the restaurant version as I think you can get. It is from about.com I found this a couple of years ago on that site, and BF requests it a tleast 2-3 times a month. it really is great, and although there are a lot of ingredients, it's basically simple to prepare.
This recipe introduced me to the fantastic flavour of coconut milk and curry paste, its insane how good it is, don't even think of skimping on any of the ingredients, you need them all. Fish sauce is super cheap and you can find it in the asian food isle in your supermarket. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
