Ingredient Notes

  • Pre-cook the rice a day before to help dry the rice out for better stir fry results.

  • You can use a large frying pan instead of a wok, however you may need to reduce the quantity of ingredients being cooked as you do not want to overcrowd the stir-fry.

Method

  1. In a large wok over a medium-high heat sauté the ginger, garlic and the whites of the spring onions in the oils for 30 seconds, mixing constantly.

  2. Add the chicken and sear until around 50% cooked. Add frozen vegetables and sauté until hot, around 2 minute. Add cooked rice and immediately after brown sugar and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. Add the soya sauce, rice vinegar and oyster sauce then keep mixing, letting the rice mixture cook for a additional minute.

  3. Push the mixture across to one side of the wok and add the beaten egg to the other side and with a wooden spoon mix the eggs until cooked and then combine everything together (If you feel your wok is too full, empty the rice mixture into a bowl. Cook the eggs then return the rice mixture into the wok). Add chillies and mix.

  4. Serve fresh from the pan with a sprinkle of spring onions.
