Quick & Easy Recipe That Can’t Go Wrong

Bean sprout is undoubtedly very healthful food, but is also not the tastiest treat. How about couple it with some chicken? This is actually a rather popular dish in southern China, where people commonly grow their own bean sprouts.

"Simple" is the key to this dish; and "Healthy" is its benefit. Of course, "Delicious" is what brings people to the table.

You can get the ingredients pretty much at any supermarkets. The preparation time varies, but you can typically get it done in as little as half an hour.

I always advocate flexibility in home-cooked meals. Nothing has to be exact, that is. So use your imagination, use alternatives wherever you see fit, and more importantly, surprise yourself and your guests!

Now, try it and enjoy!

* Chicken breast meat, 1 lb

* Fresh bean sprouts, 3lb

      Сравнительно небольшое влияние формы на величину критической силы. Двутонзурчатые сечения не отличаются от однотонзурчатых. Тяжелый блюз-рок Groundhogs остался своего рода вещью в себе. Ярые поклонники Джона Ли Хукера (взяли себе название в честь одной из песен великого блюзмена, и даже записали с мастером совместный альбом Hooker & the Hogs) знали, что такое "ритм", и, пожалуй, остались самыми "каноничными" последователями первоисточника - американского блюза 50-60-х, экспортировавшегося в Британию. Особое внимание прошу обратить на манеру игры и вокал Тони МакФи - Джон Ли Хукер одобряе.
