Chinese Chicken with Tofu
In medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients in the Chicken Marinade above. Cover and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. Marinade can be prepared up to 2-3 days in advance.
Combine all ingredients in the Gravy steps above in a small bowl and set aside.
In wok or large pan, heat 1 teaspoon of oil. Add carrots and green onions and stir fry on high for about 2 minutes or until carrots are slightly softened. Remove from pan.
In the same pan, do not worry about cleaning it, add 1 tablespoon of oil and heat pan. Drain excess liquid off of chicken and discard excess liquid. Add Chicken from Chicken to pan and cook on high, continually stirring to keep the chicken separated. Cook until chicken is browned.
Add back in the Carrots and Green Onion mixture to pan and combine while continuing to cook on high. Should only take about 30 seconds.
Keeping the chicken and vegetables in the pan, add the mixture from the gravy step above and mix well continuing to cook on high until the mixture is bubbly. This should be about 1 minute.
Continue cooking and fold in the tofu to the bubbling mixture. Be careful not to mush the tofu. The goal here is to just get the tofu hot. Once the tofu is hot, remove the chicken tofu stir fry from the pan and serve. Best served over white rice.
