This is a very simple but really tasty carb free meal. I love being able to use veg from the garden, the bean sprouts, cucumber and green beans were all home grown.
Chicken, Cucumber and Bean Sprouts (from Gok's Wok-Gok's Wan)
1 tbsp oil
4 spring onions, chopped into 2cm pieces
1cm piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
4 anchovy fillets, drained and roughly chopped
100g green beans
1/2 cucumber, halved lengthways, deseeded, sliced
100g oyster mushrooms, sliced
250g bean sprouts
2 tbsp shaosing rice wine or dry sherry
1 tbsp oyster sauce
300g cooked chicken, shredded
Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the spring onion, ginger and anchovies. Stir fry for 1 min before adding the green beans, cucumber, mushrooms and bean sprouts. Continue to str fry for another 2 mins.
Pour over the shaosing and let it bubble and reduce for a few secs before adding the oyster sauce and pepper.
Add the shredded chicken and stir gently to mix and coat in the sauce. Cook for a couple of minutes until the chicken is warmed through. Serve.
