Chicken & Spinach Stir-Fry

Chicken & Spinach Stir-Fry
So Game of Thrones, Season 5 has wrapped up and I can now, finally, begin my binge.
And boy am I fucking ready.

Because I refuse to be strung along from week to week like some g*ddamn meth head, waiting on Sundays at 9pm.
They did that to me 4 seasons in a row and I’m sick of it.
Enough is enough, it’s time to draw the g*ddamn line.

And I’ve been careful to steer wide and clear from the fucking…just the absolute tsunami of noise about it from everyone at work on Mondays.
But you know there’s always one person.

There’s always that one dope who you’ve told over and over to please not talk about the episodes in front of  you, but runs his big mouth anyway.

It’s like what did I just say?
Didn’t I just fucking ask you…

So now I gotta bury his body out back and I’m getting tired of this shit.

Game of Thrones, Season 5 has finally concluded and your girl is about to binge today like no fucking other.
And since I’m too impatient to stock up on groceries first, I’m settling with this stir-fry for sustenance.




Chicken & Spinach Stir-Fry

What I Used.

1 cup White Basmati Rice. 6 oz. Chicken Breast. 1 tsp Cornstarch. 1 tsp Shaoxing Wine. 2 tsp Sesame Oil. 2 tbsp Olive Oil. 3 cups Fresh Spinach (finely chopped). ½ cup Water or Chicken Stock.

What I Did.

Cook the rice according to the instructions on the bag/box and set aside when done.

Cut the chicken into small, thin strips.
Then combine the chicken, cornstarch, shaoxing wine, 1 tsp sesame oil, salt & pepper in a large bowl.
If you don’t have Shaoxing Wine, according to google you can substitute with Dry Sherry or Dry Vermouth.
Set bowl aside for ingredients to marinate for 15 mins.

When you’re ready to cook, heat the olive oil in a wok or deep saute pan over high heat.
Add the chicken and stir-fry until opaque.
If the chicken starts to stick to the pan, add a little more olive oil.
Add in the spinach, salt, pepper and sesame oil.
Stir-fry for 30 seconds before adding in the chicken stock.

Cover the wok and let cook for 2-3 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
Give everything a good mix and remove from heat.

Serve on top of sticky white rice.

    1. Oh and I’m the same as you re: Game of Thrones…I can not kick back and watch it all!

      P.S. Is it sad that I’m mad excited that I’m the first comment!! haha

    1. You’ve never heard of Game of Thrones?? Whoa, like wait a MINUTE..
      It’s on HBO if you guys have access to it.

      As for Shaoxing wine, you can find it in the Asian grocery aisle or any Asian grocery store.

      1. We had HBO, but I finally convinced David to remove some channels from our satellite. I so wish we could pick and choose channels rather than these stupid packages we get. Yep, the Spanish channels and shopping channels are so f-in’ important! I will look for Shaoxing next time I’m in that section of the store. I heard about a really great international market I want to visit soon….

      2. That would be the perfect cable TV wouldn’t it?
        Where you could pick and choose the channels in your package and not have to pay for other BS channels.
        God I hope someone that works for Comcast is reading this…

  1. God I hate spoilers. Any of my Facebook friends who post them get immediately deleted, and I actually physically locked my colleague out of the office earlier this year for it!

  2. I have not watched this series – I know, I know… Where are you watching it, your DVR?

    I wouldn’t mind getting through all of them this summer.

    Great recipe by the way!

  3. A nice wee snack, yes indeedy! Now let the mayhem and bloodshed begin, huzzah! (A friend of mine ‘unfriended’ someone on FB who posted a season 5 spoiler.) Enjoy your Game of Boners ahem, Throners sesh. (Not that you will read this, you are too busy.)

  4. Oh god TV show spoilers suck!! I had to work the night Sex and the City ended and someone bloody told me!!! Still getting over that one.
    I am just starting Game of Thrones, so about 5 seasons behind, I have a lot of binging to do.

  5. I have not gotten on the Game of Thrones train yet. Do I need to? I feel like I’m too much of a chicken to watch… Death & blood, right??? Hmm…

    However, this lil stir fry. Yummmmm

    1. GET ON IT!!
      Trust me, Season One will have you HOOKED, with that fine ass Danerys. Mmph!
      No but seriously it’s not just blood and guts, it’s incredibly exciting and sooo well acted.
      Get on it, trust me on this one.

  6. I have never seen a single episode of this Game of Thrones something or other, but everyone and their mother, son, sister, cousin, best friend, dog and secret lover raves on and on… and ON about it! Which means I’m a little scared to watch because of all the hype. Plus, it’s like freakin’ season five! I’m too far behind… aren’t I? I do get what you say when you had to bury that dude in the back (I’ve got a great shovel that really works well for that. It’ll save you loads of time 🙂 ). Actually, so much time, we’ll be able to enjoy that delicious stir-fry and catch up on GOT…. even from the very beginning!

    1. Hahahaha!!
      I need a shovel like that. Couple digs, quick cover up and we’re done folks.

      Oh and don’t forget the mistress, baby mama, step-cousin and that nosy-ass neighbor. Cuz you know they’re watching it too, heehee.

  7. Uuuuugh I can’t wait to try this recipe out. It looks so delicious!!! I hate Game of Thrones so much. Every episode kills me but I still can’t wait for the next season.

    1. lol lol
      I got you girl, come on home to mama – we’ll check you into rehab, no questions asked.
      No one but me and the Koala will ever have to know about it.
      Sshhh, ssshh, it’s ok.

  8. Asian cuisine, now this is what I can cook! I would bathe in Sesame Seed oil if I could….love my rice, spinach and chicken stir fry. As for GoT, since season 2, I only watch episodes here and there, the finale was interesting though, I am happy not be seeing a certain character anymore who got on my damn nerves but I wont say her/his name so as not to Spoiler Alert!

  9. I have yet to watch GoT. I read the series though… No spoilers but I do need to start watching the show. Every which way I turn, it’s all I hear about. Happy binge watching! I heard the finale was really good!!

  10. I binged the first 9 and had to wait for the last one…BRUTAL! And if that wasn’t enough…sure wasn’t expecting THAT ending.
    Your stir fry sounds like the perfect way to binge watch anything.

      1. Gosh I have so many going at once – The Walking Dead, Hannibal, True Detective, The Killing, House of Cards . . . I’ve got a few others lined up but I need to finish these first because I’ll be a very confused chicken otherwise.

  11. I cannot get enough of your commentary, you have a gift for words. It’s incrediably entertaining.

    Game of Thrones is my husband and I’s show. We are a couple episodes behind though. Did you make it through season 5?

    This meal looks delish. 😀

Go on, get it out..
