Week 26: Chicken with Bean Sprouts

The Recipe
300g skinless chicken breast
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp corn flour, divided
3 spring onions, sliced
3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp dry sherry
1/2 cup chicken stock
125g fresh bean sprouts

Mix a marinade of soy sauce, sugar and 1 tsp corn flour. Slice the chicken in very thin slices and add it to the marinade. Let it marinade for at least 20 minutes.

Heat the oil in a wok. Stir-fry the spring onions for 30 sec and push aside. Add the chicken and cook until done. Add sherry and bean sprouts.

Mix together the remaining corn flour and the chicken stock. Add slowly while stirring. Let the dish simmer until the sauce thickens a bit.

The verdict
Very bland :( I added chilli sauce and extra soy sauce which helped, but too much work for too little taste.
