KITCHEN SCOOP: Kung Pao Chicken

Friday, May 11th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – This week, KitchenScoop.com’s Alicia Ross shows how to make delicious Kung Pao Chicken for Two:

1/2 cup Jasmine rice*
1/4 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry wine*
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar*
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
4 teaspoons cornstarch, divided use
3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 egg white
3 tablespoons peanut oil
1/2 cup unsalted, blanched peanuts or lightly salted roasted
2/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced green onions*
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste

Cook rice according to package directions.

While rice cooks, in a small bowl, mix together broth, soy sauce, sherry, vinegar, sesame oil and 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Set aside.

Place chicken pieces and egg white in a small bowl and toss to coat. Sprinkle remaining 3 teaspoons cornstarch over chicken and toss again to coat.

Heat peanut oil in a 10-inch or larger skillet or wok over medium-high heat. When oil is very hot, carefully add chicken and stir-fry until chicken separates and is light golden brown on the outside and cooked through the center, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove chicken to paper towels to drain.

Remove and discard half (about 1 tablespoon) of the remaining oil. Add peanuts, red pepper, onion, and garlic and stir-fry until peanuts are golden brown and red pepper is crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Add red pepper flakes and toss to mix. Add reserved chicken and broth mixture and toss to reheat, mix well and thicken. Serve immediately over hot cooked rice.

Jordan adds Novant hospitals to endorsement list

Friday, May 11th, 2012

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Michael Jordan is perhaps the world’s best known pitchman. Now a North Carolina hospital group is joining the likes of Nike and Hanes in having Wilmington’s hoops legend promote them.

New TV spots for Brunswick Novant Medical Center and its sister hospitals feature Jordan. He even flashes his sense of humor while acting as a wannabe surgeon.

A disclaimer reads: “Michael Jordan is not a licensed surgeon. He’s just a big fan of our hospital.”

Novant’s Presbyterian Healthcare is the official healthcare provider for Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats.

ONLY ON 3: Statment from Mississippi Lt. Gov on Perdue’s “Disparaging” comments

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Mississippi Lt. Governor Tate Reeves reacts to Governor Perdue’s statement that NC approving Amendment One Tuesday made the state, “Look like Mississippi…”

JACKSON, MS (NEWS RELEASE0 — “Governor Perdue should know that her administration has a lot of work to do to make her state’s business climate ‘look like Mississippi.’ We are creating an environment which encourages the private sector to invest capital in Mississippi, and I would invite any North Carolina-based company wanting to move to a lower-taxed, less-regulated state to look at our business-friendly opportunities.

“In fact, the Tax Foundation ranks Mississippi as the 17th best in the country in its latest State Business Tax Climate Index, while Governor Perdue’s policies have dropped her state among the six worst in America. The business-friendly policies enacted in Mississippi have reduced our unemployment rate to 9 percent, according to the latest numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, Governor Perdue’s home state’s unemployment rate remained significantly higher than Mississippi’s at nearly 10 percent.”
