Chicken with Almonds

This recipe is one that I have been after for many years. It was written in a cookbook, then ripped out and placed in another, then it was misplaced and lost forever…I vaguely remembered my mom making it, and with just half of the ingredients in mind, I began mixing and experimenting with sauces until I had my “Aha!” moment…This recipe is so simple to pull together, as all my recipes are, and I promise you, if you have all your ingredients out in front of you, this will come together in 15-20 minutes.

I love the pops of corn and silky ribbons of egg nestled in a comforting bowl of yakhni (chicken stock). It’s so beautifully balanced with robust vinegar and hints of sesame. This fool proof, quick version of soup is ready in under 20 minutes, which is perfect for a cold winter evening, isn’t it?

It’ll be gone before you go for seconds, and we can’t have that…

There are some things we loved eating when we were kids, and they still us back when we eat them now. Chow Mein is something that was a regular in our home.
