Very Easy


Number of serving: 2
2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons cornflour

2 teaspoons Chinese rice wine

2 fat chicken breast fillets


  • Mix together the baking soda, cornflour and rice wine in a bowl and stir in the chicken making sure it all gets coated.
  • Cover with cling film and put the note reminding you to rinse on top.
  • Marinate the chicken for about 20 minutes. Rinse the chicken and rinse it well - remember you must do this because of the baking soda or you won't be able to eat it.
  • Dry it well with paper towel and put it back into a clean bowl. Stir in a little soy sauce and a little sesame oil, or vegetable oil. Give it a good stir. Mix together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl or cup and set aside.
  • When you're ready to cook, heat up your wok with just a tiny amount of oil and stir fry the chicken until it's almost cooked. Remove and set aside.
  • Wipe the wok clean and add a tablespoon or two of oil. When it's heated up nicely, add the garlic, onion, and peppers. Stir-fry for a few minutes and then throw in the chilies.
  • By now it will all smell delicious, put the chicken back in along with the cashew nuts. Stir-fry the chicken for just a minute. Give the sauce mixture you made earlier a stir as the sugar will have sunk to the bottom.
  • Pour in the sauce stirring all the while. Soon as the chicken is cooked through, throw in the spring onion and serve immediately with some rice.
