Invention Test *_*

Guess what this is?

A Few weeks ago... we had this "invention test" at school... Its not the traditional ones (like the masterchef ones). Seeing as we're so untalented they decided to tell us the ingredients a fortnight before we made our signature dishes

So here's what they decided to give us.

- 1 carrot
- 1 zucchini
- chicken breast
- 1 potato
- 3 snow peas
You could take one ingredient off the list and add three of your own. Knowing me, i decided to make sushi, but my friends told me that it was too easy... =.=
So i thought about making pad thai since i love thai food so much~
But then i thought of another asian dish that i LOVE! Guess what it is?

Its Szechuan Chicken~
Had many obstacles to pass through but at last i garnished my dish and it looked good. But my friends looked better :) haha-

This one is my Szechuan Chicken
The One above is my friends chilli basil chicken
<Can you see her garnishes? She sliced her finger while she was cutting the pattern out... i warned her coz she was cutting towards herself... now she thinks that i jinxed her.... hmmm -_->


  • Zucchini
  • 1 Carrot
  •  1 Chicken breast
  • 2 Garlic Bulbs
  • 1/2 cup of rice
  • Any other ingredients which you would like to add to the dish (:
Ingredients for the sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Hoi Sin Sauce
  • 1 tsp Soya Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame oil
  • 2 tsp Chilli Bean Sauce
  1.  Cook the rice and let it cool
  2. Chop the top and end of zucchini off and then cut it in half. Place it so it stands up and chop it in half again. Cut the zucchini in a diagonal gesture. Put it all onto a plate.
  3. Chop the garlic into find pieces. Peel the carrot and chop it in half. Then half it agai nlike you did with the zucchini. You can either cut it long ways or diagonally like the zucchini.
  4. Cut the chicken into thin pieces.
  5. Make the sauce (by mixing all the 'ingredients for the sauce' together).
  6. Turn on the stove and pour oil evenly on to a wok or a fry pan.
  7. Pur the garlic onto the wok or frypan and leave it until it turns brownish in colour
  8. Quickly add the chicken breast and cook until half cooked. Chicken breasts cook really fast so be careful that it doesn't burn.
  9. Add the zucchini and carrots from the plate into the frying pan. Add 1 Tbsp of water and mix.
  10. Leave it and place the lid on top until you see steam.
  11. After that, pour your sauce in and cook until it is even. Close the lid and put stove on high. When there is steam take lid off.
  12. Plate up and then add your garnish. Put all the rice into a bown and turn it upside down onto a dish to get the semi circle effect.
  13. Serve
Tutorial for the garnishes on my dish coming soon xx
Take care until then (:
