I love nuts and by that I mean dry fruit in case you have a very disgusting mind. Thank God I'm not a woman because it would have sound even more dirtier.
Not every dry-fruit or form of nuts is good for health. Some are just plain calories and blood pressure catalysts.
Some of these things are helping in weight-loss (which doesn't mean that you gulp them), they are good for hair, skin, reducing diabetes and stress relief.
This recipe I am going to make is again oriental and has lots of walnuts in them ?(as much as you want to add). It is a bit different of a Stir Fry Walnut Chicken with a combination of nice and expensive vegetables.
500 grams of boneless chicken cut into 1 inch thick pieces
1/2 medium red capsicum
1/2 medium yellow capsicum
a medium sized broccoli stalk
some finely chopped green onions
1 cup of chicken broth
4 teaspoon of cornflour ( 2 for the chicken and 2 for the broth)
4 teaspoons of soy sauce ( 2 for the chicken and 2 for the broth)
1.5 teaspoon salt (half for the chicken and one during the cooking)
1.5 teaspoon black pepper (half for the chicken and one during the cooking)
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 cup of walnuts but you can add more if you want
First of all we marinade the chicken by adding 2 teaspoon of corn flour, 2 teaspoon of soy sauce, salt and black pepper with a little chicken broth just to give the chicken a nice flavor.
Now we add the other 2 teaspoon of soy sauce and corn flour in a separate bowl, whisk it together and then add the remaining chicken broth to it .
Set it aside.
After doing the both above you cut your vegetables the way you like them.
Let the stir frying begin.
Heat up 3-4 tablespoon of oil in a non-stick pan (JUST BY THE WAY I NEED A NEW ONE).
Add the chicken along the ginger paste, garlic paste and cook it until the chicken changes color.
Add the chicken broth mixture and if you want you can add the walnuts right now or later at the end.
I added them after this step to add more flavor to them and the whole darn recipe.
Let it cook until the gravy gets a little thick.
Add the broccoli first, stir fry it for 2 minutes and then add the red/yellow capsicum.
Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper at this point so the vegetables are not tasteless.
Stir fry for a minute or two.
I stir fried it until the gravy was reduced enough to give the whole dish a dry look.
Sprinkle on some chopped green onion at the very last minute and you are all done.
Top it off with more walnuts and chopped green onions.
Ladies and gentlemen, lets all go nus for Stir Fry Walnut Chicken.
