    A really easy meal I make anywhere! As long as you have a stove top! (prepare all items before frying) Use a wok add 1 table spoon of oil (your choice I use olive oil) heat pan till oil is hot (not burning) add pieces of chicken season in salt and black pepper about 1/2 lb (I use chicken breast and cut them into bit size squares) add garlic (1 clove) add onion (1/4 of a onion) cook/stir till chicken is cook and onion is soft added firm tofu (1/2 of the tofu you buy a local supermarket) (cut in long rectangles finger size) gently stir as not to break the tofu add oyster sauce (about a 1/4 cup) add little salt for more flavor cook for at least 15-20 mins depending how fast your stove is turn off stove add as much cilantro and green onion (chopped they way you like/ i do cilantro kind of big and green onion finely) (if you like spicy add 2 bird chili peppers cut long, thin, and fine to batch) Serve 4 people best with white rice! EnjoyJessica and Jean both have good answers and I have used similar recipes but have found that the hob does not provide enough heat to properly seal the stir fry and I have used the wok on the barbecue and had much better results.

    Best-Ever Chinese Chicken Salad: All the great flavor of the original, now packed with garden-fresh ingredients. Prep and Cook Time: 45 minutes. Notes: To save time, you can use store-bought crispy wontons or chow mein noodles instead of frying your own. You can also substitute one 11-ounce can of mandarin oranges for the fresh orange slices. 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces 2 navel oranges (see notes) About 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil 4 fresh wonton wrappers, cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips (see notes) 6 cups finely shredded cabbage 2 cups cubed cooked chicken Spicy soy-ginger dressing (recipe follows) 1 large avocado, cubed 4 green onions (including green tops), sliced diagonally 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds 1. In a 2- to 3-quart pan over high heat, bring about 1 quart water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, then plunge asparagus into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside. 2. Cut off and discard ends from oranges. Following the curve of the fruit, cut off peel and outer membrane. Slice oranges crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, then cut these rounds into quarters. Set aside. 3. Pour the vegetable oil into a 3- to 4-quart pan (the oil should be about 1/2 inch deep) and set over medium-high heat. When oil reaches 350°, add wonton strips and fry, stirring, until golden brown on both sides, about 30 seconds total. Lift out with a slotted spoon and transfer to paper towels to drain. 4. In a large serving bowl, toss the cabbage, chicken, and asparagus with the dressing. Top with avocado, orange slices, and wonton strips, then garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Spicy soy-ginger dressing. In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon Asian red chile sauce (such as Sriracha), and 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger. Slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup vegetable oil or grapeseed oil, whisking constantly. Season with salt to taste. Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servingsCut boneless skinless chicken breasts into strips, sautee in chpped garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil, if you have it. When halfway done, toss in a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies (peppers, onions, snap peas, chestnuts, etc) and some broccoli. Serve over rice, or break up a package or two of ramen noodles & toss in with a cup of water. Not authentic Chinese, but delicious anyway.

    Food Network has alot of varieties of dishes you can imagine and they list them according to recipe, chef/show, difficulty and user ratings (which are very helpful I have found). I put in a search for Chinese and the link below is the first page of many that lists Chinese dishes. Just look at the 3rd column over and scroll down till you find a dish that says *easy* and there you go. Good luck! P.S. I use this website all the time when I want to find a certain dish or if I just want to make something new and creative.

    I regularly do a chicken stir fry. Chicken thigh fillets, any vegetables you like, cook them in a wok with garlic, chilli and soy, that is all I add and it is always tasty.
