It's a new year! I hope you all had a good new year's celebration. After this new year, yeah - the Chinese population will be looking forward to our Lunar New Year! :) Like most people, I admit I overindulged during the celebratory seasons so today's feature is a rather 'healthier' dish made with tofu (protein!) and minced chicken (more protein). A very easy stir-fry that goes perfect with rice.

This recipe is part of my Yuen Chun Recipes.
2 slabs of firm tofu (use the marinated ones), sliced and pan fried
1/2 cup of minced chicken or pork
4 cloves garlic, smashed
3 stalks green onions, sliced (green parts for garnish)
1 sprig of cilantro (optional), sliced
2 slices ginger
1 tablespoon light soy sauce (I used Yuen Chun's)
1 tablespoon abalone sauce (as above)
Dash of white pepper
Dash of Shaoxing Wine
Firstly, heat up your wok until almost smoking. Turn heat to low. Swirl to coat. Add garlic, white parts of green onions and ginger.
Once fragrant, add in pan-fried tofu. Add in minced chicken. Add soy sauce, abalone sauce and a dash of white pepper and Shaoxing rice wine. Turn heat to high and pan-fry for about a minute. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of water. Turn heat to low and cover for another 2 minutes.
Make sure chicken is cooked then dish out. Sprinkle green onions and cilantro on top. Serve hot with rice.
