Gai See Meen (Chicken with Noodles)
This is a dish that I make occasionally which is rather easy to do.
2 or 3 pieces of chicken thigh or breast (I like thigh meat)- sliced
6 pieces dried mushrooms - soaked and sliced
green vegetable - I used spinach
egg noodles - 150 - 200 gm/ person
1 cube chicken stock
2 tbsp dark soya sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
handful of bean sprouts
water from the soaked mushrooms
1 tbsp cornflour - mixed with some water
1. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and then drop the noodles into it. If using fresh egg noodles, blanch for about 3 mins and remove from water. If using dried noodles, then cook for about 7 mins.
2. In the meantime, pour the water from the soaked mushrooms (1 cup) into a pan and add about another 1 cup water. Add the sliced chicken and mushroom and cook for about 5 mins. Add oyster sauce, dark soy sauce and chicken cube or stock. Bring to
boil and simmer for about 15 mins. Add spinach and bean sprout and corn flour slurry and add seasoning to taste.
3. Divide noodles equally and pour chicken gravy over the noodles and serve.
