Chinese Chicken marinade. Click picture to enlarge. Copyright David Marks If you have fresh chicken stock pour that into a medium sized bowl. If not dissolve a chicken stock cube in half a cup of water and pour that into the bowl. Add the sweet chilli, ground ginger, Chinese five spice, olive oil and soy sauce to the bowl and mix well with a fork.

Add the chicken stock, cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for one to two hours (the longer the better).

 

Put the rice on to cook so that it will be ready at approximately the same time as the Chinese Chicken is ready. Slice the red pepper in half, remove the white inner pith and pips and chop into small pieces.

When the hot plate is piping hot, place the frying pan on it and add the entire contents of the chicken marinade. Fry for eight minutes turning the chicken every minute or so.

Now add the bean sprouts, chopped pepper and frozen peas (the peas can be added to the rice which should still be cooking if you prefer). Stir the ingredients gently, cooking for a further four minutes.
