Dhahran Theatre Group Cookbook, 1993

Ingredients:

1 Egg

Directions:

Take one fresh(ish) egg – preferably a hen’s egg. Immerse in a pan of water and bring to the boil. Boil for 3 1/2 minutes or 210 seconds if preferred.

Remove from pan with a clean(ish) tablespoon and place in an egg cup or liqueur glass. Bash the top with a teaspoon and peel off most of the broken shell at the top of the egg. Retain a little shell for “roughage”.

Scoop out contents of shell and serve hot or cold.

Ingredients:

3-4 Chicken breasts (boneless), thawed

Directions:

Start thawing frozen vegetables. Start cooking rice (if desired). Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Mix cornstarch, soy sauce and sherry (or water) together and set aside. If using bullion for broth, prepare that.

After vegetables have thawed 15-20 minutes, heat vegetable oil (medium-high) in a wok or skillet. When oil is very hot, stir-fry chicken until it’s white. Add vegetables and continue stir frying 5-6 minutes. Add mixture of cornstarch, soy sauce, sherry. Add broth. Stir until liquids thicken. Serve immediately.
