Chicken and zucchini, prepared in a wok, by following this recipe, is tasty, quite light as well as filling. Serve this meal accompanied with rice and a nice glass of white wine. It will be simply too good not to repeat it.

Ingredients

  • 400 g chicken fillets, cut in strips
  • 50 ml white wine
  • 80 ml oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 teaspoons Vegeta Chicken Stock Powder
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
  • 400 g zucchini, cut in half and then in thin slices (unpeeled)
  • 50 ml water

Preparation

  1. 1.
    Heat up the oil in the wok.
  2. 2.
    Coat the meat in corn flour and cook in hot oil. Once the meat starts to turn golden in colour, remove from the wok and leave aside, covered.
  3. 3.
    In the same oil, cook the zucchini, for a short time only, and then remove.
  4. 4.
    Tip out about half of the remaining oil.
  5. 5.
    In the oil that is left in the wok, add in ginger and cooked meat, then cover with water and wine.
  6. 6.
    Sprinkle Vegeta Chicken Stock Powder and cook for a few minutes. Just before serving, add sesame oil.

Serving

Serve the chicken and zucchini with steamed rice.

Tip

The best way to cut the chicken strips thinly is to freeze the meat half way. Then ensure it is completely thawed out prior to cooking.
