Stir-Fry Chicken with Chinese Long Beans

For this post, I am sharing my next food recipe, Stir-Fry Chicken with Chinese Long Beans. I finally had a chance to go for a quick grocery shopping (lugging our 2 older kiddos along and leaving our youngest with my MIL at home) and I passed by the vege sections a few rounds and was beating myself up while mentally scolding myself that I MUST get some veges before I head home with the kiddos.

You see, I am not a fan of vege and ever since I decided to devote my passion in cooking homemade food for all meals (whenever possible) once our 5 years old boy started his preK early this year, I told myself I must include vege in our meals no matter what. Must get kiddos to eat vege and must also show examples to them that mummy also takes vege.

Now my knowledge of green colored vege is really limited and what more at the whim of that moment, I just grabbed one of the familiar looking vege - Chinese long beans and told myself I'll figure out some recipe once we reached home. So without further ado, here is the recipe for Stir-Fry Chicken with Chinese Long Beans:

* Chinese Long Beans
* Chicken boneless - cut up to small cubes, quantity up to you actually
* 1-2 tbsp of oyster sauce (you can add water to dilute the sauce)
* Garlic - 1-2 cloves sliced finely
* Oil - about 1 tbsp

* Wash the
Chinese Long Beans, soak them for about 10-15 minutes.
* Cut off the ends, and chopped into smaller lengths (I cut about 1cm each)
* For the chicken, wash and pat dry. Cut into smaller size (I choose boneless part as they are easier for kiddos to eat)
* Heat up oil in pan.
* Fry the garlic next until you smell nice garlic-ky smell from the frying pan. Be careful not to overfry them as it will give bitter taste then.
* Fry the chicken for a few minutes.
* Add the Chinese Long Beans and oyster sauce and stir in.
* Let the sauce simmer for about 5 minutes.

I had a horrified look as I see my hubby and our 2 kiddos dig into this dish. I mean, wouldn't you be terrified knowing that you just cooked something without any recipe to follow and watching your 'guinea pigs' trying out your cooking?! Anyway, surprisingly, despite seeing the vibrant green colored vege in their plates, both our kiddos did not mention anything about the existence of green vege in their plates! They ate everything without making a fuss! I'm amazed! I'm gobsmacked! This recipe is for keeps!
