Chinese style chicken with vegetables
Chinese style chicken and vegetables - delicious, easy to prepare, spicy chicken fillet dish with cauliflower and asparagus beans. A distinctive feature of the chicken in Chinese is its sweet and sour taste. I intentionally reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe, since, in my opinion, it is a bit much, but you can adjust the taste as you like - add a little more or a little less vinegar or sugar.
Vegetables in Chinese recipes should be crispy, for this they are chopped finely and cooked very quickly. If you are a happy owner of a wok pan, then this recipe is just right for cooking in a wok.

The method of cooking chicken with vegetables in Chinese
First we make pasta, without which, perhaps, not a single dish of Chinese cuisine. This paste consists of garlic, fresh ginger and chili.
Peel the garlic, chop finely. Ginger root is scraped, also cut finely. We clean the chili pod from seeds, cut into rings.
Put the chopped ingredients in a mortar or in a blender, add a pinch of coarse sea salt as an abrasive, and grind until a homogeneous paste is obtained.
Then we heat refined vegetable oil in a pan, ideally sesame or peanut. We throw finely chopped shallots into the heated oil, add ginger and garlic paste, fry for several minutes - release delicious aromas.
Chicken fillet cut into small cubes. Shred carrots with thin strips. Throw the carrots into the pan, add the chicken in a few minutes.
Fry the meat, stirring, then pour rice vinegar and soy sauce, pour sugar, salt to taste. Fry everything together for another 5 minutes, add diced sweet bell pepper.
We sort the cauliflower into small inflorescences, put it in boiling salt water for 2-3 minutes, then throw it to the chicken.
Asparagus beans can be put in a frozen pan, so delicate pods will preserve green color and remain tender.
Add 2-3 teaspoons of dried green chili and a tablespoon of dried carrots. Such seasonings are usually put to get a variety of textures.
Add tomato puree or pour a thick tomato sauce, mix and cook over high heat for about 8 minutes, until the moisture evaporates.
Remove the pan from the heat, sprinkle the chicken with vegetables in Chinese black sesame seeds, leek rings, freshly ground black pepper.
