This Shanghai rice cake stir-fry is an absolute classic--chopped Shepherd's purse, chicken (or pork), and chewy rice cakes in a flavorful sauce. Check out this classic Shanghai rice cake stir-fry recipe!
Course: Noodles and Pasta
To marinate the chicken:
6oz.chicken breast(170g, cut into very small, thin strips)
Combine the chicken and marinade ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Prepare the rest of your ingredients.
When you're ready to cook, heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Stir-fry the chicken until opaque. Add the shepherd’s purse (or spinach), salt, white pepper, and sesame oil. Stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the rice cakes on top of the meat and veg (the rice cakes shouldn't be directly touching the surface of the wok), along with the water or chicken stock.
Cover the wok and let it cook for 2-3 minutes (not too long, or the greens will turn yellow and the rice cakes will be soggy). Once the rice cakes have softened, mix everything together and serve immediately.
