 Homestyle Chinese cooking tips

Cutting techniques. The texture in many Chinese dishes depends on the ingredients' being sliced uniformly thin. A sharp knife helps. To cut chicken and other meats very thinly, freeze them for about 15 minutes, then slice.

Rice stick noodles. No need to boil. Just soak in very hot liquid (water works fine, but chicken broth adds more flavor) until soft, about 15 minutes, then drain. When you stir-fry them with the rest of the ingredients in your dish, you have to stir vigorously to separate.
