Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP Canola Oil
  • 1 White Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery
  • 500g Chicken mince
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 150g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • 2 TBSP chopped bean sprouts

Method:

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Add the chicken mince and mix together, breaking up the mince up with a fork. Cook for a further 5 minutes.

Note - If preferred, try tossing the san choy bau mince through vermicelli noodles as a stir-fry, or use as a filling for spring rolls or dumplings.

I like the recipe but I am pretty sure my kids will unfortunately refuse eating such meal. Still will cook it for myself after I do my essay today.
