Experimental Cookery 2011 #7: Chicken Chow Mein

Source: Chinese Food Made Easy by Ching-He Huang
Cook Time: About 15 minutes prep plus 15 minutes cooking
Difficulty: Easy
Servings: 2
Equipment used: Wok, chopping board, sharp knives, spoons, etc.

This was an interesting one. I had previously tackled chicken chow mein while working through Jamie's book, so was curious to see how the two compared. This meal was considerably less involved than Jamie's version, considerably quicker and easier to put together, and generally less of a hassle.

The results from this meal were also quite excellent. Could perhaps have done with a bit more chicken (and I should probably have cut the chicken into smaller pieces), but otherwise it was pretty much ideal. I think this is the better of the two approaches.

Result: 8/10. Lady Chocolat gave this 10/10, but she is obviously easily impressed - after all, she agreed to marry me!
