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.


Wined Chicken In Deluxe Gravy

poultry, chicken, oriental

1 fryer (3-4 pound in weight)
1 large onion, cut into wedges
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced or
1/2 cup canned mushrooms
1/2 cup celery, sliced or
1 celery stalk, sliced
1/2 cup water chestnuts, sliced
4 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup soya sauce
1/4 cup wine
1 1/2 tablespoon corn starch, dissolved in
1/3 cup water

1. Take your Chinese cleaver and chop through bone of chicken to form chunks of chicken, about 2x2". Marinate all chicken chunks in wine, soya sauce, salt for at least 20 minutes. In the meantime, slice all the other ingredients and have ready for cooking. 2. If your wok is small, you will have to divide your chicken into 2 batches and cook each batch seperately. If your wok is large enough to hold all the chicken, then place 4 tablespoons oil in it, heat to smoking point, add all of the chicken and onions to it, stir fry and brown chicken on all sides with wok uncovered. This will take about 10 minutes. At the end of this period, cover wok and cook chicken a further 10 minutes. 3. Uncover wok, add clery, mushrooms, water chestnuts, stir everything well. Cover wok and cook ingredients 3 minutes, uncovering wok, once to give things a stir. Mix starch solution up well, add to wok, stir everything up thoroughly. NOTE: If your wok is small, cook the chicken in two batches. Remove both batches of chicken to a serving platter. Leave chicken juices in wok. Cook vegetables and make gravy in it. When vegetables and gravy are cooked, pour over chicken. This dish can be used as a main dish in Canadian cuisine, by not cutting up the chicken so fine.
