      Title: Stir-fried chicken
 Categories: Poultry, Stir-fry, Usenet
      Yield: 2 Servings
 
      1 lb Chicken breast,
           -boneless
     12    Mushrooms (white)
    1/2 lb Broccoli, fresh
           -(or 1 pk frozen)
    1/4 c  Chicken broth
      2 T  Soy sauce
      2 T  Sherry
      1 T  Cornstarch
      1    Egg white
    1/2 t  Salt
    1/2 c  Vegetable oil
           -(peanut oil is best,
           -but sunflower oil
           -is good, too)
    1/2 t  Cornstarch
      6 oz Bamboo shoots, canned
           -(optional)
      6 oz Cashew nuts, broken
           -into large pieces
 
  Cut the boneless chicken breast into bite-sized pieces.  Wash and
  slice the mushrooms.  If using fresh broccoli, wash and cut it up
  into bite-sized pieces.  If using frozen broccoli, heat it or
  partially thaw it first.
  
  Combine chicken broth, soy sauce, sherry and about 1 T cornstarch.
  Stir well and set aside.
  
  Combine beaten egg white, salt, about 1/2 t oil and about 2 t
  cornstarch. Add the chicken cubes to the mixture and stir until the
  chicken is well-coated. In a wok or deep cast iron pan, heat about 3
  T vegetable oil until hot. Add the chicken pieces in small batches
  and stir continuously until golden brown. After each batch is
  finished, remove and drain. Add oil sparingly as needed.
  
  Stir fry the mushrooms in the wok.  Stir fry the broccoli in the wok.
  Combine the chicken, mushrooms, broccoli, bamboo shoots and cashew
  nuts in the wok. Stir fry to get everything warm again. Add the
  bouillon-cornstarch sauce and stir until thickened.
  
  Serve with rice.  Don't forget to start the rice so that it will be
  done at the same time as the chicken.
  
  NOTES:
  
  *  Chinese stir-fried chicken with broccoli and nuts.  Yield:  Serves
  2-3.
  
  *  Bamboo shoots are available in cans at Chinese grocery stores.
  Fresh broccoli is preferable to frozen, and it should be stir-fried
  for only a few minutes to keep it crunchy. Endless variations of this
  basic recipe are possible.  Beef, pork, or other lean meats can be
  substituted for the chicken. Tofu cubes or brown beans can be used to
  make this a vegetarian recipe. Chopped almonds can be used instead of
  cashews. Water chestnuts are a delightful addition. Green or red bell
  peppers can be used instead of broccoli.
  
  : Difficulty:  easy.
  : Time:  45 minutes.
  : Precision:  no need to measure.
