Ingredients
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp curry powder (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese five spice mix
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 chicken thighs (diced, skin and bone removed)
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 240 ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp soy sauce (*or tamari to be gluten free)
  • 2 tsp chilli sauce (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 red pepper sliced
  • 80 g miniature corn
  • 80 g mange tout peas
Instructions
  1. Mix the spices and cornflour together. Then add the chopped chicken and mix well to evenly coat the chicken.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or flat casserole dish. Add the chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken has cooked on all sides.

  3. Add enough stock to just cover the bottom of the pan. Stir well so that there are no lumps of spice mixture. Add the sliced red pepper & the soy and chilli sauces.

  4. Simmer the mixture gently for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce will thicken until a track will remain for a few seconds after dragging a wooden spoon across the bottom of the pan.

  5. Add the mange tout and miniature corn. Stir in well and then cover for about two minutes, to allow to soften slightly.

  6. Serve immediately.
