Valentine's Recipe from ZENTAN

Plan a romantic dinner at home for Valentine's Day and make your sweetheart a special recipe of Empress Chicken from ZENTAN Restaurant.


By Chef Susur Lee

8 oz Chicken Breast sliced thin (coat with 1 egg white and 1 tsp cornstarch season with salt and white pepper)

2 oz oil for cooking

4 oz Sliced Shitake Mushrooms

1 small onion slice

1 stalk of celery sliced

1 small red pepper sliced

1 tsp garlic chopped

1 tsp ginger chopped

2 oz toasted cashews

1 oz rough chopped cilantro

2 oz oyster sauce

2 oz Worcestershire sauce

1 oz soy sauce

.5 tsp corn starch

1 T water

A wok is preferred, but this dish will work just as nicely in a sauté pan. Heat up your pan to medium heat, add chicken that has been sliced and marinated, cook 75% then add garlic ginger, let cook 30 seconds and begin to add the rest of vegetables. Make slurry with the cornstarch and water and set aside. Add the Worcestershire sauce, oyster sauce, and soy sauce, thicken with slurry, finish with chopped cilantro and toasted cashews. Serve over steamed rice.
