At some point in my childhood my mom got tired of making the same old meals. To fight the boredom, she entered the craze of stir fry cooking using a wok.
It didn’t work as well as she had hoped since we had an electric stove and proper wok-cooking requires a real flame. However, she did find this recipe which has stayed in the family for years. Chinese chicken is so easy to make right in a non-stick skillet. It is usually served on rice but it also tastes very good on crunchy Chinese noodles.
