One of the reasons Chinese food tastes so good is because of all the various sauces, oils, and spices we use. It might seem kind of complicated, but really it boils down to some different types of Chinese Sauces and Spices to keep in your pantry!
Do you have leftover cooked rice around? If so, perfect! Time to make some authentic Chinese Chicken Fried Rice! This recipe is easy and super tasty – chicken, peas, carrots, onions, eggs, ham, and green onions – what is not to love? Better than take out and much healthier too! There’s also a gluten free option!
One of the most popular Chinese soaps is Egg Drop soup! But did you know there are actually several versions? This Chicken Egg Drop Soup with Shiitake Mushrooms is a tasty version that is also very easy to make!
When I was growing up, my family made fun of me for being a carnivore. I’ll admit, back in days I was all about the meat – chicken, pork, beef, lamb, you name it! But at some point, I really started enjoying eating veggies too. Now it feels odd when I eat a meal without veggies! That’s why one of my fave Chinese take out menu items is Moo Goo Gai Pan. It’s one of the healthier options – Chicken with mushrooms and other veggies!.
Chinese Shredded Chicken Cucumber Salad is a very refreshing side dish or appetizer and perfect for the summer. At my house, we make it almost every time we have left over chicken. You get to use up the left over chicken and eat a yummy dish!
There’s a few things I like to order when I’m eating Chinese takeout and trying to eat healthier. One of these things is Chicken with Broccoli. Turns out it is also easy to make at home! Here’s my Chicken with Broccoli Chinese Recipe if you’re looking to learn how!
This Jalapeño Chicken Stir Fry is one of my favorite dishes by my mom. Once I have one bite of it, I can’t stop! Next thing you know, I ate almost all of it and I’m complaining about how full I am but guess what – totally worth it! Something about the jalapeno and the hot sauce combo just gives it the right amount of delicious kick.
This Coconut Curry Chicken dish is cooked with Potatoes and is not only a super flavorful dish, but it’s also easy to make and healthy for you! I have my mom to thank for this one! I learned this delicious recipe from her. Warning though, you are going to get SO hungry cooking this because the coconut milk smells amazing!
This Chinese Chicken with Mushroom is a simple stir fry recipe that makes a delicious entrée! It’s made with chicken, mushrooms of your choice (here I use cremini mushrooms), scallions and more. I prefer to also add some dried red chili peppers to add an extra kick too!
This Chicken Zucchini Mushrooms Stir Fry is a simple stir fry that we like to make! We marinade the chicken and then stir fry with sliced mushrooms and zucchini, and then either serve with white rice or noodles!
Sesame Oil Chicken is a super flavorful traditional Taiwanese dish made by cooking chicken with sesame oil, sliced ginger and rice wine. Not to be confused with the popular Sesame Chicken dish served in Chinese Restaurants in America, this dish is savory and not sweet. This recipe is easy and delicious!
This Chinese Chicken Mushroom Soup (香菇雞湯) is on my rotation week after week. It’s not hard to see why, the broth is insanely tasty, as the soup is made with one whole chicken, shiitake mushrooms, red dates and more!
Chicken congee is a savory rice porridge that I grew up eating as a comfort food. It’s made by simmering rice in chicken broth with chicken and veggies – the ultimate comforting dish for when I wasn’t feeling well or just wanted something to warm me up!
