    wizkid's Note:

    This is really easy to make, and makes an absolutely delicious chinese meal if served with rice. Chopping ingredients takes all the time here, as it is cooked really quickly. It comes from 'Chinese Cooking' by Deh-ta-Hsuing. This is a book I have had for 20 years or more, and I have made this recipie many, many times.

      This turned out very good, though I did do some switching and changing. I added about 1 teaspoon grated ginger to the chicken/egg white mixture. I added some pre-cooked snow peas at the end, instead of the peas. I did season the chicken with the given 1/2 teaspoon salt, but I used only 1/2 teaspoon additional salt, 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon sugar. I added about 1 tablespoon Chinese wine. I do think that for me, this dish needs the addition of ginger and/or garlic. I will play with it again. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

      Hubby loved it, I thought it was good and super easy. I didn't have spring onions and used about a cup of snow peas. I will be making it again.
