Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Chicken With Asparagus

chicken, chinese

1 lb chicken thighs
1 1/2 lb fresh asparagus
1 1/2 tablespoon fermented black beans
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup water
3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoon cold water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon thin soy sauce
1 green onion, slivered
1 dash of pepper

1. Bone and remove skin from chicken. Cut into 1"x 1 1/2" pieces. 2. Add "seasoning" to chicken and mix well. 3. Cut off and discard the last 2 " at the base end of the asparagus. Then, cut each spear diagonally into 2" lengths. Wash and drain. 4. Wash black beans thoroughly (at least 2 rinses). Mash the beans and mix with the crushed garlic. 5. Heat wok. Add 2 tablespoon oil. Stir-fry the seasoned chicken for 5 minutes. Set aside. 6. Reheat wok. Add 1 tablespoon oil and the black bean mixture and cook for 1 minute. 7. Add the asparagus and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Then add salt, sugar, and water. 8. Add the chicken and bring the mixture to a boil. 9. Thicken with cornstarch mixture (made with 3/4 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 1/2 tablespoon cold water). Cook for 1 minute, and serve. NOTE: Do not try to substitute canned asparagus! SOURCE: Chopsticks, Wok and Clever
