The easiest comforting 30 minute meal. You can find the equivalent in most takeaways but for triple the calorie intake and loaded with E numbers. Don’t get me wrong I love a greasy chinese takeout but why bother when you can make it so quickly at home and not feel so bad about eating it!

Cook Time30 mins
Servings: 4 people
1 Thumb size Ginger thinly sliced into batons
400 grams Chicken Breast chopped into chunks
4 Garlic cloves chopped
1/4 Cup Dark soy sauce
3 Tbsp Honey
1 Red bell pepper chopped into chunks
1/2 Onion Chopped into chunks
5 Spring onion thinly slice the white and roughly chop the green part
1/2 Cup Water
1 tsp Corn flour To mix in the water
1 Tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp Chilli flakes
1 Tbsp Seasame oil
1 Cup White rice
1 Cup Green beans Chopped
2 Eggs Whisked
Handful Chives chopped
Handful Spring onion Chopped
1 Tbsp Butter
1 1/2 Tbsp Dark soy sauce
400 grams Tenderstem broccoli
1 Tsp Oil oil
Salt And Pepper
Preheat the oven to 180C
In a microwavable bowl add one cup of washed rice to 1 cup water with a pinch of salt, cover with a plate and microwave for 9 min, let it stand with the plate on for a few minutes (this will steam it further) then with a fork break the rice up and set aside for later.
For the tenderstem: Scatter the broccoli on a baking tray, spray with a little olive oil and season. Roast for 10 min or until chard on the edges.
In a pan on a medium/high heat fry off the garlic, ginger, black pepper and chilli flakes in sesame oil for a few min. Then add in the chopped chicken fry until browned for around 5 min then chuck in the chopped pepper and onion for a further 3min. Pour in the soy sauce, honey, water with the corn flour (this will thicken the sauce slightly) let it bubble away for 5 min until glossy. At the last min chuck in the spring onion and season to taste.
For the rice: In a large pan on high heat melt the butter and scramble the eggs, chuck in the chopped green beans along with the cooked rice, stir fry for a few min. Finally add in the chopped spring onion, chives and soy sauce stir fry for a few min.
Serve the stir fry rice with the salt and pepper honey chicken and roasted tenderstem.
