  • uncooked chicken breast strips: 1 lb for stir-frying
  • oriental dressing and marinade: ¾ cup
  • vegetable oil: 2 teaspoons
  • thinly sliced Chinese cabbage: 3 cups
  • fresh baby spinach leaves: 3 cups
  • sliced green onions : ¼ cup
  • chopped dry-roasted peanuts: 2 tablespoons


  • Get a bowl and mix the chicken strips with a quarter of the oriental dressing and toss it to coat. Leave it at room temperature to marinate for 10 minutes
  • Get a skillet and heat oil on above medium high heat, until the oil is hot.
  • Lift the chicken from the bowl into the hot oil. You can do away with the rest of the marinade.
  • Stir fry the chicken for an average of 7 minutes or till it is brown, and the inner pinkish colour has been gotten rid of.
  • Get the chicken off the heat and add  the remaining half of the oriental dressing. Stir thoroughly.
  • Divide the cabbage evenly in portions, then add the chicken on it. Sprinkle the chicken with your chopped onions and peanuts.
  • You may add more dressing if you wish, but if not, your meal is ready to be served.
