  • 500g (1lb 2 oz) chicken breasts, diced
  • 2tbsp Chinese rice wine
  • 2tbsp soy sauce
  • 2tsp sesame oil
  • 2tsp caster (superfine) sugar

  • 1 small red and 1 small green pepper (capsicum), diced
  • 2 Lebanese (short) cucumbers, halved, seeded and diced

To serve

  • Steamed rice
  • Unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped

If your rice or pasta always boils over, Janice Wood, 38, from Stoke-on-Trent suggests rubbing the inside of the pan with vegetable oil.


  1. Heat 1tbsp of the oil in a large wok or frying pan over high heat. Cook the chicken in batches for 3-4 mins, or until golden, then remove from the wok.
  2. Mix together the rice wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar and cornflour. Return the wok to medium-high heat.
  3. Add the rest of the oil, the onion and ginger and stir-fry for 1-2 mins, then add the pepper and cucumber and stir-fry for another 2 mins. Return the chicken to the wok, add the sauce and stir-fry for another couple of minutes.
  4. Serve immediately with steamed rice and chopped peanuts.
