What do you need in order to make the perfect chicken stir fry?
Stir FryAfter trying many stir fry recipes in my home kitchen, I believe that these are the MUST items to have in order to succeed.
A very high wok flame- it is not a must, but if you have it you will get better results than from working on a regular flame.
WOK: A good Wok is a must and I prefer to work with a non stick version, which saves me time and effort when I clean it.
Oil: canola or peanut oil work the best for stir fry because of the high temperature they can get to without burning.
* It is very impotent to really heat the wok before adding the oil.
* Cut all the vegetables and chicken to the same size to make sure they will all cook at the same rate.
* Shake and stir and play with the wok over the heat source.
