Chicken, Shrimp And Chinese Vegetables in a Sesame Sauce



  • 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine or sherry
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 pinch white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 pinch cumin
  • 1 pinch ginger
  • 1 pinch Chinese five spice powder


  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 4 Tbsp water


  • 2 chicken breast cut into strips
  • 2 Boneless chicken thighs cut into strips
  • 10-15 raw shrimp if frozen, thaw
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • vegetable oil
  • 2 clove garlic diced
  • ½ onion cut into large pices
  • 2 stalk bok choy
  • 1 carrot sliced diagonal
  • 8 oz baby corn
  • 1 c sugar snap or snow peas
  • 1-2 pinch dry ginger


  • 1/2 lb wheat stick noodles Or 1 pack ramen noodles or server over white rice


  • Prepare the marinade and sauce by combining the ingredients listed below them. Cover and set aside.
  • Separately, marinate the chicken and the shrimp in two separate bowls for about 1 hour and 15 minutes respectively.
  • Meanwhile prepare the noodles by placing in cold water for 3 seconds and draining. They should soften in about 10 minutes. Note, this is not spaghetti, these are wheat lo mein or ramen noodles.
  • Heat about a Tbsp of vegetable oil in a wok or large, deep frying pan over high heat. Sauté the chicken until about 80% of the way done (about 5 minutes or so.) Take out, cover and set aside.
  • Add shrimp and saute for about 3 minutes until about 80% of the way done and take out, cover and set aside.
  • Heat another Tbsp of oil in the wok or pan over high heat. Add the garlic and onion and saute for about a minute.
  • Add the carrots and baby corn and saute for another 3-5 minutes until carrots start to become tender.
  • Add the bok choy, and peas and saute for another 3 minutes until they become bright green.
  • Add the chicken and shrimp back and stir fry for another 2-3 minutes until both are cooked through.
  • Add the noodles and saute until they become a little brown. Don’t worry if a few burn, this is good.
  • Add the “sauce”, stir and let thicken.
