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.


Kung Pao Chicken - Gungbao Chicken

chicken, chinese

1 lb chicken
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon rice wine
2 1/2 oz peanuts
4 scallions
8 dried chiles
3 slice ginger
2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 oil for frying

Dice the chicken: marinate for 30 minutes in 1 tb soy, the cornstarch and rice wine. Cut the scallions into 1 in. pieces and the chiles in half (they are assuming you are using small ones). Heat the oil and deep fry the chicken dice for 2 minutes. Drain well. Reheat the oil and fry peanuts for 3 minutes. Drain. Heat a pan with 3 TB of oil and stir fry ginger, scallions and chiles. And chicken dice and stir fry for another minute before stirring in 1 tb soy and the sugar. Adjust the seasonings and stir in the peanuts. Serve sprinkled with sesame oil. [Note: I believe this recipe assumes the use of raw peanuts. If you are using roasted peanuts, omit the deep fry.] This is from a Chinese cookbook published in Taiwan.
