Garlic’s health benefits and medicinal properties have been long known. Its considered to be a natural antibiotic. However, it also said that most of its properties are killed while cooking. Since, I am not a big fan of consuming raw garlic and since I simply love cooking with garlic, I will stick to the latter option 🙂

Here’s another chicken variety for you..and cooked with yes…Garlic!!

Boneless and skinless chicken breast – 4 breast halves
Egg white – 1 No
Corn flour – 1 Tbsp
White wine – 1 Tbsp
Onions – 4 Nos (sliced thin)
Ginger – 1 tsp (minced or finely chopped)
Garlic – 2-3 tsp (minced)
Oil – 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Spring onions – 1 No (finely chopped)
Dash of pepper

For sauce
2 Tbsp soya sauce
2 Tbsp white wine
1 tsp red chilli paste
1 tsp corn flour
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp vinegar
1 Tbsp water

  1. Wash and clean chicken breasts and place them in the freezer for about 1-2 hrs or until very firm. Should not let it freeze
  2. Cut them into thin stripes
  3. Beat egg white along with the corn flour abd wine till corn flour completely dissolves
  4. Add chicken to this and coat all pieces and leave at room temperature for 30 minutes
  5. Heat oil in a wok and fry the chicken until it’s somewhat cooked.
  6. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and in the same wok add onions, ginger and garlic and sauté well. They should not turn brown.
  7. Tip in the chicken back into the wok.
  8. Combine all sauce ingredients, mix well and add to the wok.
  9. Keep stirring and cooking till gravy thickens.
  10. Sprinkle a pinch of freshly ground pepper and spring onions.
  11. Serve hot with rice or noodles.

Till next time….happy cooking! 🙂
