Cooking - 7 min + marination time

  1. Over a medium flame, heat a little oil in a wok or similar pan and add the marinated chicken pieces and cook, stirring regularly, for about 2 min to seal the chicken.
  2. Increase the heat to maximum and add 100 ml of hot water and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 min or until the water is almost evaporated and the chicken is fully cooked through (check that the chicken is cooked by cutting the largest piece in half and that it is white all the way through).
  3. Continue to cook for 1 min more, by which time the liquid should have reduced leaving only some oil (see note 2).


(1) The marinade can be pre-made and refrigerated for later use (recommended). This makes 200 ml of marinade.
