Stir Fried Broccoli and Chicken with Egg Tofu




5 min


15 min

Egg tofu is often called Japanese egg tofu. It’s similar to Chawanmushi, but this one comes in a tube. Frying this tofu is a little bit of a pain as the oil splatters…unless I’m doing something wrong and someone has a trick! A little bit of pain just to eat this? Worth it! At home I will scream like a little girl, but when I used to work at a Sushi Restaurant (I was placed behind the conveyor belt and customers were able to see me cooking), I could not scream when oil splattered especially when cooking gyoza’s, so I had to learn how to suck it up and look like a bad ass.

Anyways, this dish is pretty simple and fast to cook. I also use very little chicken in this, cus the hubby and I love broccoli, so I add more broccoli. We don’t have a good relationship with vegetables (we count eating a bunch of onions,potatoes and even chives as vegetables), so anytime I can add more veggies to a dish…I will.
