I recently found a super easy Hot and Sour Chicken Broth recipe that I wanted to test out with my new stainless steel cookware. I bought this cookware because I really like the way it looks and it comes with a steamer as well. Basically, it’s a multipurpose cookware. The stainless steel cookware that I bought is the Farberware Classic Saucepot and Steamer. Now, let’s move on to the recipe that serves up to 6 people and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare.
I used a big red onion instead of 2 shallots, 3 sticks of lemongrass, ginger, 5 red chillies (cause I love spicy foods!), a handful of coriander and spring onions, 3 chicken breasts (cut into bite-sized pieces), sesame oil (but you can use groundnut oil too), 1.75 litres of light chicken/vegetable stock, fish sauce and 4 limes.
The first thing you have to do is obviously wash the ingredients and peel them. Then, thinly slice the shallots, cut the lemongrass (don’t forget to remove the leaves), chop the ginger, chilli, coriander, spring onions and chicken. The chicken should be in bite-sized pieces. Now, fry the onions till they’re light brown. When the onions are perfect, put in the lemongrass and ginger. After a 30-40 seconds, add the stock and the chilli. Let it simmer for a while and then you can add the chicken. All you have to do now is wait till the chicken is cooked. Once, the chicken is done, you can add the lime juice and fish sauce (the amount is up to you). When you feel that it’s ready, add the coriander and spring onions. You can start serving after this. I hope you try this at home!
