Recipe in: One Dish Dinners

Egg Fu Yung (Chinese Pancakes with Cabbage & Brown Rice)

Total time: 35 minutes
     If you cook the rice with water or vegetable stock, you have a lovely vegetarian main course.  The rice adds 'substance' to the egg although you really can't tell that it's there.  The cabbage retains just enough crunch.  They go together quickly if the rice is cooked in advance.

Egg Fu Yung Ingredients:




Chicken Sesame Stir Fry  to accompany Egg Fu Yung   

Total time: 15 minutes
    I just do one, just to have a little something on the side with the Egg Fu Yung.

chicken1 - 2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless depending on hunger  or you could use 'chicken tenders'           150gr, 5.3oz
2 tsp olive oil          9gr, .32oz
1 tsp sesame oil           4.5gr, .15oz
1 - 2 tbs cornstarch (maizena, corn flour)      1 tbs: 8gr, 2.8oz
1 tsp sesame seeds          3gr, .1oz
1 tsp soy sauce          5.3gr, .19oz

Cut chicken into strips.  Put cornstarch and sesame seeds into plastic food bag.  Add chicken and toss to coat.  Heat oils and soy sauce in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chicken and stir-fry 7 - 10 minutes, until done.  Serve with Egg Fu Yung.  Keep warm in the oven along with the Egg Fu Yung until ready to serve.
