Char Siu Chicken Stir-fry
Char Siu Chicken Stir-fry
An Asian-style chicken, vegetable and rice stir-fry

  Not much to say about this, except that it is a typical stir-fry with a light spicy flavour.

1 chicken breast fillet
2 Tbsps Lee Kum Kee char siu sauce
1 Tbsp sherry
2 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil, or similar
¼ tsp sesame oil
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and julienned
2 cup mushrooms, peeled and sliced ¼ capsicum, sliced
1 cup chopped cabbage
½ cup each frozen peas and green beans
1 cup uncooked white rice + water and...
1 tsp chicken stock powder
1 tsp minced garlic or crushed clove
1 tsp garam marsala
½ tsp powdered ginger
¼ tsp turmeric
¼ tsp salt (optional)
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¼ cup water

Trim any fat and skin from the chicken breast and slice thinly across the width. Mix the char siu sauce with the sherry in a suitable dish, toss the chicken slices in this to coat thoroughly; then cover and consign to the fridge to marinate for an hour or more. Boil the rice in sufficient water with the stock powder. Once cooked, drain in a colander and flush with cold water to remove the starch; then cover and set aside. Now prepare the vegetables as above. These can be immersed in a bowl of cold water if not being used immediately; but drain well before frying.

In a wok or deep frying pan, warm 1 tablespoon of oil; then stir-fry the chicken slices over a low-medium heat, turning frequently for about five minutes until cooked through. Remove from the pan and put back in the marinade bowl. To the same pan, add 1 tablespoon of oil and the sesame oil. Put the garlic, garam marsala, ginger powder and turmeric to warm in the oil before adding all of the vegetables. Stir-fry these over a medium heat for about 10 minutes, add the ¼ cup of water, mix well, then continue stir-frying for 5-10 minutes to soften. Add the chicken slices with any leftover marinade and toss to combine while stir-frying. Finally add the rice and stir-fry a further five minutes or more to heat through. Serve on warmed plates.
