Even a light and healthy dish can be a main course if based on chicken, and if you do something a bit out of the ordinary it can be as tasty and enjoyable as many other culinary specialties. This is particularly true if we find our inspiration in distant lands, thereby adding some spice to our own imagination. That's why, today, we have decided to take you on a gastronomic journey to the Far East, specifically to China, and suggest you try this delicious chicken with almonds, a traditional recipe which nevertheless keeps something of a local Italian touch, exploiting the secrets of home cooking. Don’t worry: even if chicken doesn’t generally get a great reception in your house because it is rather bland and mundane, with this recipe you will give it a little something extra and your guests will be bound to appreciate its originality. Are you ready to get the oven on and start sharpening your knives?
Cut the chicken breast into large cubes, mix them with soy sauce, a pinch of salt, cumin and ginger, and let it marinate for 30 minutes. Cut all the vegetables into large cubes and mix them in a bowl along with the shelled almonds. In a wok or very large frying pan, sauté all the vegetables with plenty of sesame oil. When they are almost done, add the chicken and finish cooking. Serve hot along with steamed basmati rice.
