For my first post from Hong Kong, I decided it would be fitting to dig up and detail one of the meals I made during a cooking class in Shanghai earlier this year. I had to adapt it a little to make it gluten-free, but it still tastes genuine!
100 g Chicken breast
Handful of peanuts
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp rice wine
1 tbsp chilli paste
1 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp ginger
I tbsp garlic
1 tbsp gluten-free thick soy sauce
- Dice the chicken breast. Season the chicken with salt, sugar, pepper, 1 tbsp rice wine, coat with 1 tbsp of cornstarch and then cook in a little oil. Take out when the chicken is cooked.
- Fry the ginger, chopped garlic, chilli paste and 1 tbsp rice wine until fragrant. Add diced chicken, a little water, a little more sugar, vinegar and a little starch.
- Top with the peanuts and serve.
I am now off to explore my new surroundings and get organised! Stay tuned for pictures and lots of food recommendations :)
