Almond Chicken

Nihao, I'm Chef Shamsher. Just kidding, I'm just a man who cooks on the weekends.

Sometimes I wish there was a Chinese dish with ingredients like some of my relatives because I sure want to chop and stir fry them these days.

It's that time of the week when I make your life easier by telling you how to cook a certain thing you dummies.

This is Almond Chicken made from scratch with some vegetable fried rice that I have already told you how to make.

You need:

500 grams boneless chicken 1 inch cube cut

1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste

2 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon oyster sauce

1 tablespoon cornflour mixed in half a cup of cold water

1 cup chicken stock

150 grams roasted almond

Vegetables of your own choice but here I choose:

1 cube cut carrot

1 cube cut onion

2 diced spring onions

A can of sliced mushrooms

150 grams of boiled peas

Now on high heat put a tbsp of oil in pan.

Add the chicken, ginger garlic paste and stir fry it for 2-4 minutes. Then season it with salt and pepper. Half a teaspoon would be enough.

Add the carrots and mushroom and stir for 2 more minutes. Then add the peas. Remember,  hardest vegetable is always first one to fry. Repeat after me, THE HARDEST VEGETABLE IS ALWAYS THE FIRST ONE TO FRY.

Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce and almonds.

Stir and mix till every thing is coated properly.

Add the chicken stock and the onions. Bring to a boil. Cook for 2 more minutes.

Now it's time to thick the sauce by mixing the flour in a half cup of cold water and putting it in the boiling pan. Add the roasted almonds after words.

Taste the sauce. Adjust salt or thickness. It's ready now. 

Eat it with boiled white rice, vegetable fried rice or any kind of rice and noodles. YOU WILL LOVE IT. Almond Chicken is mild not spicy at all but if you want to add some spice to it by all means use 1 or 2 tablespoon of chili sauce, peri peri sauce or sriracha sauce.
