LIFE is a DANCE if you take the STEPS. This is my DANCE. The story of my LIFE.

Dancing is moving to the music without stepping on anyone's toes, pretty much the same as life.

Green Bean Chicken

on September 9, 2015

Velveting of Chicken – is a Chinese cooking technique used in stir-frying. The chicken breast is coated in a mixture of egg white and cornstarch (rice wine or dry sherry and salt are frequently added), marinated for up to 30 minutes, and then cooked very briefly in hot oil until the color turns to white. After velveting, the chicken is added to the stir-fry, to finish cooking with the other ingredients.


Ingredients for Velveting

1 Egg White

1 Tbsp Chinese Wine

2 Tbsp Oil

1 tbsp Cornstarch

1 Chicken Breast – cut into strips


Combine egg white, Chinese wine, oil, cornstarch and salt. Whisk together. Add the chicken strips and marinade for 30 minutes. In this recipe I marinated it overnight.

Ingredients for Stir Fry Sauce

1/3 cup oyster sauce

1 Chicken Cube

3 tbsp Chinese Wine

3 tbsp Soy Sauce

2 tsp sugar

1 tbsp sesame oil
