Prep/Cook: 10/10 min     £8.35     Difficulty: ◉◉◉     Serves: 2


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into 2.5cm (1in) pieces
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 5cm (2in) piece fresh ginger, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 dried red chilli, crumbled, plus extra to serve
  • handful roasted peanuts
  • steamed white rice, to serve
    For the sauce
  • 100ml (3 1/2fl oz) chicken stock
  • 2 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp cornflour


  • For the sauce, put the stock, sugar, rice wine vinegar, soy and cornflour in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside until needed. Heat the oil in a large wok set over a high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden. Remove and set aside.
  • In the same wok, stir-fry most of the spring onions, the ginger, garlic and chilli for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the peanuts and continue cooking for 2 minutes, or until golden.
  • Return the chicken to the wok and pour over the sauce. Cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, until the sauce is glossy and thickened and the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat showing. Divide the chicken between plates and scatter over the remaining spring onions and a little extra chilli. Serve with rice.
