Delicious AND Nutritious!
This delicious stir fry is so quick and easy to make and is great heated up the next day for lunch.

Serves 2 (with leftovers)


1/2 tablespoon peanut oil
1 chicken breast diced
1 carrot chopped into 0.5cm rounds
1 head broccoli chopped into 'trees', stalk sliced
2 bunches bok choy sliced finely
1 onion chopped (chunky)
2 cloves garlic diced
1 red chili diced (seeds included)
1 1/2 cups cooked rice (brown or white)

For the sauce

1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 chicken stock cube crumbled
1 1/2 cups cold water
2 teaspoons cornflour

1. Prepare the sauce first by combining all ingredients in a small jug or bowl and stirring well with a fork until there are no lumps. Set aside.

2. Heat oil in a large wok or flat pan on HIGH and add onion, chili and garlic. Stir with a wooden spoon until onion begins to soften.

3. Add chicken and stir intermittently until it begins to brown, then add all vegetables except bok choy.

4. Stir vegetables intermittently for around 5 minutes or until they begin to soften very slightly. Now, add the bok choy and mix until combined.

5. Pour in the sauce and bring to the boil. Once bubbling, reduce to a simmer and leave for 5 minutes. The sauce should be still a little bit runny, yet thick. If too runny, sprinkle a teaspoon of cornflour onto the top, stir in and leave to simmer for a few extra minutes.

6. Serve with rice and enjoy.
