Chinese Velvet Chicken and Brussel Sprouts Stir Fry Recipe ~ Brussels Sprouts



We love brussel sprouts and I'm always looking and trying new recipes using sprouts Tonight I'm making a Chinese velvet chicken and Brussel sprouts stir-fry

The chicken is velvety soft tender and the sprouts add lots of flavor and texture All stir-fried with a delicious Chinese sauce I'm Tess and welcome to my kitchen I'm starting by preparing the chicken I have about a pound of thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts You want the pieces bite-sized and sliced about 1/8 of an inch thick

I'm adding in a pinch of salt and about an eighth of a teaspoon of white pepper If you don't have white pepper you can use black In goes 1 large egg white and 3 to 4 tablespoons of cornstarch I'm adding in 3 tablespoons and stirring to see the consistency You want the chicken pieces thoroughly coated to the point they are sticky and won't absorb any more

Setting the chicken to the side while I prepare my sauce and prep the vegetables For the sauce, I have a half a cup of water and I'm adding in a tablespoon of light soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of dark soy sauce and this is gonna add some color, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon of shaoxing wine or Chinese cooking wine or you can use rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch for a thickener Giving that a good mix and setting to the side I have everything prepped and ready Here I have a pound of Brussel sprouts that I cleaned and cut into halves and the bigger ones I cut into quarters

Don't they look good?!!! I have a pot of boiling water and I'm going to blanch my carrots and sprouts for a couple minutes until they are tender and then place them in a cold water bath to stop the cooking process This also helps to retain their vibrant color! Just a reminder that I would leave the recipe and the list of ingredients for this Chinese velvet chicken and Brussel sprouts stir-fry below this video Also remember to like and subscribe if you enjoyed this video recipe and click the bell to make sure you receive notification of all my future video recipes We are not done with that water yet I'm going to cook the chicken in the water

We are actually poaching the chicken and this will give it a super soft velvety texture Just add the chicken pieces to the water and they will sink to the bottom You will want to do this in two batches and remember not to overcrowd the pan Once you have the chicken in the water give it a gentle stir to make sure nothing is sticking to the bottom As the chicken cooks it will float to the top and this is going to take about three to four minutes

Once done, remove the chicken and set to the side Don't worry it won't stick together I've already made this velvet chicken in batches and refrigerate it for the next day It stores really well I've also used this velvet chicken technique in some of my other Chinese stir-fry recipes

You can visit these video recipes in my Asian recipe playlist and I will also leave links below this video Okay! I think we are ready to make the stir-fry happen This recipe does take several steps but it is well worth it In my skillet on medium-high heat I'm adding in about three tablespoons of vegetable oil, one tablespoon of minced garlic and 1 large diced onion Cooking and stirring for a minute or two and then I'm adding in my blanched carrots and Brussel sprouts

Ggiving that a good but gentle stir I'm being careful not to break apart my sprouts too much Now I'm adding in the chicken and pouring over my sauce Remember to give the sauce a good stir before pouring to get all that cornstarch up off the bottom Everything is cooked at this point and now we were waiting for the sauce to come up to a boil, thicken and coat everything with that deliciousness

This will take about 1 to 2 minutes and continue to stir until everything is coated You can see the dark soy sauce has given everything a great color If you like Chinese stir frys and sprouts you are going to really enjoy this meal You can add the vegetables that you like and maybe even spice it up with some chili garlic sauce or sriracha The chicken is so soft and tender using this velvet cooking technique

It's so easy to prepare and cook and the results are incredibly good I hope you give this Chinese velvet chicken and brussel sprout stir-fry a try and enjoy if you like this video recipe please hit the like and subscribe button Remember to hit the bell next to the subscribe to make sure that you get my future video recipes You can also find me on Facebook and at my website
