Finally my kitchen is beginning to make some sense and we’re slowly unpacking all the boxes. This makes me happy. I know where things are now, I can cook!
So I cooked. Mind you I started with an easy recipe such as this oyster sauce chicken with peppers and snow peas, but today I will bake. Today, I will make that kitchen mine!
I had a vision. A vision of a nice chicken stir fry kind of dish. We were both getting tired eating out and take out over the past week, so this was such a welcomed meal. A home cooked meal. Even if I had screwed it up, it would have been delicious, which I did not, mind you.
Did I tell you what else I love about this house? Sorry this has nothing to do with this recipe, but I have to share this with you. It’s the air conditioner! When we moved to Calgary everyone was telling us, you don’t need an AC here, if you do it’d only be for 2 weeks of the year. Well it’s more like 2 months, but if it happens you move during those 2 months and you have to unpack, trust me when I say but the AC is a God send.
Anyway enough babbling on, back to this dish. This recipe calls for oyster sauce, now if you’ve never cooked with oyster sauce, you can find it in the Asian isle in your grocery store. Oyster sauce is made from sugar, salt and water thickened with cornstarch and oyster essence for flavoring. You’ll love it! The rest of the ingredients are fairly simple, chicken, peppers, snow peas and onions. It’s an easy meal that you can make any night of the week.
