After the holidays, our Clap can go in a couple of different directions. On the one labourer, after a steady diet of stuffed birds and figgy puddings, we try something lighter, something that note clean and simple. On the other script, it’s cold out there, and we want chow that’s satisfying to curl up with.

What to do, what to do..

What’s that I see? (Add upbeat superhero music hither.) A stir-fry on the horizon? (Insert hoofbeats.) Why, that’s blameless the thing.

This is fast, effortless and immensely

without duration heavy.



Serves 4

Start to finish: 35 before you can say ‘Jack Robinson’


1 pound boneless, skinless crybaby breasts, cut into 3/4-in dice

1 teaspoon kosher vigour, divided

1/2 teaspoon freshly loam black pepper

1 tablespoon starch

2 tablespoon oyster sauce

1 containerful sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon sugar

2 tablespoons produce oil, divided

2 teaspoons minced contemporary ginger

2 teaspoons minced ail

1/2 pound sugar snap peas, cut and de-stringed

1 cup diced red bell scatter

8 ounces baby spinach

1/2 cup white-livered broth

Hot cooked rice or quinoa to service


In a large bowl, toss the chickenhearted with about half of the bite, the pepper and the cornstarch until the lily-livered is well coated. Set aside.

In a humble bowl, mix together the oyster impudence, sesame oil and sugar.

Heat a bulky skillet or wok, preferably nonstick, on top of medium high heat. Change 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in the pan, then add the gingery and garlic and give a brief splash. Add the chicken and stir fry until it rotates white, about 2 minutes. Move the partially cooked chicken to a plateful with a slotted spoon.

Come back the pan to medium high heat. Add the left tablespoon oil, then add the sugar snatch peas and peppers and sauté for 1 arcminute. Then add the spinach by the handful and scramble-fry until it wilts, adding and as the volume goes down, until all of the vegetable is added and somewhat wilted. Add the white-livered broth and bring to a simmer. Add the shellfish sauce mixture, and return the wholly cooked chicken to the pan. Simmer, Moving occasionally for another 2 minutes, until the volaille is cooked through. Serve above the hot rice or quinoa.
