I was looking for a quick and healthy chicken dish to cook mid-week. I had a look on the Google and came across this recipe. It’s from taste.com.au. The chicken is really tasty but I think the rice is lacking something. I added some soy sauce which made it a little less bland. That said, it’s a lovely meal.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1-2 long red chillies, chopped

1 lemongrass stem (inner core only), finely chopped

3cm piece ginger, chopped

3 garlic cloves

3 tablespoons honey

1 1/2 tablespoons mirin

3 teaspoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons sunflower oil

700g chicken breast fillets, sliced

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 cup (200g) jasmine fragrant rice

2 spring onions, thinly sliced

1/2 cup Thai basil leaves, roughly chopped

1/2 up coriander leaves, roughly chopped

200g snow peas, blanched, refreshed, thinly sliced

Method

1. Whiz chilli, lemongrass, ginger and garlic into a paste. Add honey, mirin, fish sauce and 1 tablespoon oil and blitz until combined.

2. Toss chicken in a bowl with half the marinade. Chill for 15 minutes. Combine soy with remaining marinade. Set aside.

3. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to packet instructions. Keep warm.

4. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a wok or large pan over medium-heat. Add half the chicken and cook, turning, for 5-8 minutes until browned and sticky. Repeat with remaining 1 teaspoon oil and chicken. Keep warm.
