I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Papaya Chicken

A little Asian inspiration going on today.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb) cut in 1 1/2 - 2" cubes
1 - 1 1/2 cups cubed papaya
1 cup sliced onion
2 tsps soya sauce
2 tsps apple cider vinegar
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp + 1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsps minced ginger
2 tsps minced garlic
1/8 - 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp soya sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
salt and pepper to taste
a handful of spinach, roughly chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice

Combine 2 tsps soya sauce, apple cider vinegar and cornstarch and toss with the chicken. Let stand 15 minutes. Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet and cook the sliced onion on medium heat for 1-2 minutes, then add the ginger and garlic for 1 minute longer. Make a well in the center of the pan, add 1 tbsp oil and the chicken and cook on medium high for 5-7 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Add pepper flakes and 1 tbsp soya sauce and stir together, then remove to a plate.

Deglaze the pan with the orange juice and bring to a boil to slightly thicken. Return the chicken to the pan and add the papaya, cooking for about 3 minutes. Toss in the chopped spinach, lemon juice, salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Serves 3 - 4 with a side of rice
