Bean Sprout Chicken

Bean Sprout Chicken is a quick and easy Asian chicken dish that goes well with a bowl of rice. This recipe is easy to follow and the outcome is a good dish full of Asian flavor.

I like Bean Sprout chicken because it is low in fat and cholesterol and it has a mild delicous taste that pampers my taste buds. The dish always satisfies my tummy everytime I have this for lunch.

Before I forget, note that it is important to not overcook the bean sprouts. Feel free to adjust the amount of heat and cooking time depending on the condition of your bean sprouts.

Adding some cooking wine will help improve the taste of this dish. I am using Shaoxing wine everytime I prepared this dish.
