Hot Stuff Chicken
( SERVES 4 )
Prepare all ingredients before cooking. Great on noodles or rice.
- Cut the chicken into thin strips. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok over a high heat and add the chicken and sugar. Stir-fry until lightly browned. Remove to one side.
- Add a little more oil to the wok, if necessary. Add the peppers, chillies, spring onions and peas and stir-fry over high heat for 1 minute. Add the spinach or cabbage and continue stir-frying for another minute.
- Whisk together the cornflour, chilli paste, water, soy sauce and hoisin sauce. Stir into the wok. Return the chicken to the pan with the cashew nuts and cook until the sauce is bubbling and thick. Serve immediately.
