Chicken stir fry with seasonal vegetables

This chicken stir fry is an oriental dish made in the wok with a technique typical of Chinese cuisine, which allows you to cook with less oil and less time, taking advantage of the high temperatures and continuous movement.

A dish rich in taste and color thanks to seasonal vegetables. In fact, I used a trio of peppers, yellow and red, courgettes, carrots and some rocket leaves. What if you want to make a winter version of this chicken stir fry? Try it with broccoli, pumpkin and sweet potatoes!

In the recipe for this poached chicken, I will also give you lots of tips for perfect cooking. To not miss the "sizzle" and prepare perfect dishes in record time.

Chicken stir fry with seasonal vegetables


Don't just call it "pan". The wok is the main tool of a real cooking style. The sauté cooking, carried out in a wok or in a non-stick pan with high sides that can withstand high temperatures, in fact allows a very fast cooking, keeping almost intact the nutritional elements contained in fish, meat and vegetables that otherwise, with a more prolonged cooking , would be lost.

Precisely for this reason, cutting is essential, especially for meat, because it reduces cooking times. The greater the surface of the food in direct contact with heat, compared to the inside, the shorter the time required for perfect cooking. For the same reason, in addition to being thin, the portions of each ingredient must be similar: equal size, equal cooking times.

The choice of oil is also fundamental, which must guarantee a very high smoke point, and continuous movement during cooking.

Even the preparation of the ingredients, already cut and arranged in a serving dish, radially, in order of cooking (the famous wok clock) is crucial for the success of the dish. I read about the wok clock technique for the first time on “Chinese cuisine without secrets” by chef Jeremy Pang of the School of Wok in London.

With this philosophy of preparation, each ingredient, ready, correctly cut and added in the right order, will cook perfectly and much faster, without the risk of burning.

Less time, more taste.

Just like for the cake pops of cookies, the pappardelle with coffee grounds and the cooked fish, this recipe is also part of my column TURN ON THE APPETITE on Click, the magazine of Accendi luce & gas Coop, full of dishes, techniques and ideas for “low impact” cooking.

I heated my wok with oil. After 2 minutes I added the garlic, spring onion and ginger, stirring the contents with a wooden spoon, for about 3 minutes. Then I added the chicken, browning it on all sides for 3/4 minutes, finally the soy sauce. I let it evaporate for a couple of minutes, then I combined the vegetables, at a distance of 2 minutes each, skipping them with the movement of the wrist and moving them delicately with the spoon. If necessary, I added more oil.

In about 15 minutes the chicken will be perfectly cooked and the vegetables crunchy and tasty. I served with some fresh rocket leaves, a few rings made from the green part of the spring onion and sesame to taste.

Turkish Sweet and Sour Peppers Recipe – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Turkish Sweet and Sour Peppers Recipe

A tasty recipe, learned from a friend of Turkish origin. Basically, it would be a recipe similar to the Sicilian one, with the variant of adding coarsely chopped dried fruit and dried fruit. For these last ingredients I used cashews and dehydrated blueberries, while for the sweet and sour tone I used honey and apple cider vinegar. Then the abundant basil gives the magical touch that makes this simple dish the queen of a buffet, a cold dinner or a simple appetizer. Seeing is believing !

Wash the peppers well, dry them

Clean the peppers removing also and above all the white nerves inside, and all the seeds

Cut the peppers into strips and put them in a pan, salt and pepper to taste

Start cooking with a covered pan, and halfway through cooking, add the cashews, blueberries, dried basil and if you want the dry mixture for spagnetta which is based on parsley, garlic and chilli, or as an alternative to the latter mixture of spices you can only put chilli. Mix everything, and continue cooking, always with the pan covered.

Almost at the end of cooking, add the previously prepared mixture of apple cider vinegar and honey and let it evaporate with the pan uncovered, then add the chopped fresh basil, stir and turn off the heat. Before serving, leave the peppers to rest with the pan off for 5 minutes.

Put the peppers in a serving dish, decorate with a sprig of fresh basil and serve.

They are also good served at room temperature or even cold.

Serve cold and decorated with sprigs of fresh basil, accompanied by warm croutons and a good prosecco
