RON'S CHICKEN HEKKA

Chicken Hekka (Heh Kah) is a popular local dish that is served up at parties, and generally it is cooked in a large wok, my brother Calvin loves to make this, however on the last dinner we had he added pork and I had to turn away from eating it, I don't do pork any more, I'll cook it if someone loves it, but at this juncture in my life I have to give it a quick "no,"

Here's all the ingredients for this wonderful Japanese inspired dish, everyone in Hawaii has their so called "best recipe" which is fucking bullshit! because if you got the base ingredients its all the fucking same shit!

This is a call for that large wok that's hanging in uncle's garage and the portable gas burner with the full blast BTU flame! Or you can trim it down for a 14 inch wok inside the house and just use 5 oz. of chicken instead of the whole chicken farm.

DA INGREDIENTS

3 lbs. of chicken thighs, bone off, skin off, cut into strips with a Chinese cleaver, I said Chinese cleaver asshole! Okay sorry maybe a regular kitchen knife.

3 tbsp. peanut oil

1/2 inch ginger minced

20 oz. of sliced bamboo shoots from a can

5 stalks of green onions sliced 1/2 inches

3 carrots sliced thin

4 oz. rehydrated shitake mushrooms sliced

2 long celery stalks sliced into 1 inch

4 oz. of chopped watercress

14 oz. firm tofu sliced into 1/2 inch cubes

4 small packages of fine rice noodles

MARINADE

1/2 cup Kikkoman soy sauce

1/2 cup peanut oil

2 tbsp. mirin and 1 tsp. honey

1 tbsp. minced garlic

1 inch minced ginger

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

2 tbsp. arrow root

1 tbsp. brown sugar

SAUCE

3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
3/4 cup canned low sodium chicken broth
1 tsp. tabasco

1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients, and soak the chicken for one hour, I said one hour ass hole! What? You got a problem? Nah.

2. Take all the sliced vegetables and set them aside.

3. Mix the sauce ingredients, and then toss It at your cousins face! No, set it aside.

4. Heat up that large ass wok over high eat, swirl some peanut oil in there with the ginger, now add the chicken pieces and brown it with some marinade got that muchacho? As soon as the fucking chicken is browned, keep that fucking heat up! And then add in the fucking vegetables, and cook for about a minute or two, and then add the fucking sauce and rice noodles and continue to cook until the rice noodles are just cooked, don't cook too long or else the shit will turn all mushy.

Note: Some guys will soak the rice noodles for a little while in some warm water, but why? When that shit cooks fast anyhow, no need to soak the noodles first, that's that culinary school bullshit! Do it my way and have a fucking great Christmas!!!!!!

WARNING! IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO PEANUT OIL, USE A VEGETABLE OIL INSTEAD, I DON'T WANT YOU DYING... SO SUBSTITUTE IT.
