Kunming Chicken with Asian Pear

Poultry

Kunming Chicken with Asian Pear
Ingredients:
1/2 pound chicken breast meat, cut into one-inch cubes
1 egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 Asian pear, peeled, cored, and cut into one-inch cubes
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 scallions, sliced thinly
3 slices fresh ginger, peeled and cut into slivers
1/8 pound Yunnan or Smithfield ham, sliced thin, then cut into half-inch pieces
Preparation:
1. Mix chicken cubes, beaten egg, cornstarch, and salt, and let it rest for fifteen minutes, then stir once more and put this mixture into a strainer to drain the excess liquid. Mix pear cubes with lemon juice and set aside, Drain this just before frying them.
2. Heat wok, add the oil, and fry the coated chicken breast cubes for up to two minutes, until crisp and half-cooked. Then, add the pear cubes and stir-fry another half-minute before removing everything from wok and setting this aside in a strainer over a bowl.
3. Reheat wok, but do not wash it out, and fry half the scallions and all the ginger for half a minute, then add the ham and return the chicken-pear mixture to the wok, as well. Remove everything to a pre-heated serving bowl, sprinkle the rest of the scallions on top, and serve.
