in food •  2 years ago  (edited)

This was one UBER tasty Stir Fry and the PERFECT recipe to prepare in my gorgeous Wok. I made a few additions to the original recipe.. which I have noted below... and might I say... they were AWESOME additions :D I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


1 tbs fresh lime juice (I just used lemon juice)
1 tbs rice wine vinegar (I just used red wine vinegar)
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tsp caster sugar
Light olive oil spray
500g chicken breast fillets, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced (I used pre-chopped garlic)
1 long fresh red chilli, deseeded, thinly sliced (I didnt take the seeds out. hehe)
300g snake beans or green beans, cut into 4cm lengths
1 x 225g can sliced bamboo shoots, drained
Steamed SunRice Doongara CleverRice, to serve (I used basmati)
Fresh Thai basil leaves, to serve (I used plain basil as my thai basil bush is still a baby)

I also added: Grilled bacon bits, feta cheese as a topping and I added baby corn into the stir fry mix... ALL went FABULOUSLY with the recipe!!


Step 1 Place the lime juice, vinegar, fish sauce and sugar in a small bowl.
Stir until the sugar dissolves.

Step 2 Heat a large wok or non-stick frying pan over high heat. Lightly spray with olive oil spray.
Add half the chicken and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a bowl.
Repeat with the remaining chicken, reheating the wok between batches.

Step 3 Lightly spray the wok with olive oil spray.
Add the garlic and chilli to the wok, and stir-fry for 30 seconds or until aromatic.

Add the beans and bamboo shoots, and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until beans are bright green and tender crisp.
Return the chicken to the wok and add the lime juice mixture.
Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until well combined and the chicken is heated through.

Step 4 Spoon the rice among serving bowls.
Top with the chicken stir-fry. Sprinkle with basil leaves to serve.![]
