Fruity Fried Chicken

               This was something quite lovely.  When i learnt this 10 years back, I was real glad that the Chef incorporated fruits into main dish.  Though of course she told us that we could either use Chicken or not a very "fatty" belly pork.  Aw if you do drop by, as have not seen any of your comments in my blog, this is specially for you :)

  3. Put 2 Tabsp of oil in wok when the oil is warm throw in the seasoned meat & stir fry for a short while, then remove meat.
