Here's our fusion of Chinese dishes where Kung Pao Chicken meets Chicken in Black Bean Sauce. We're using a little bit of heat from Kung Pao Chicken and taking the toasted cashews that work so well in a stir-fry and pairing them with the deep flavours of fermented black beans. You’ll be preparing a quick home-made egg fried rice, making this a great dish to whip up on Friday nights in place of a takeaway.

Our 25 minute recipe

  1. "Velvet the chicken"

    Whisk 1 egg with 1 heaped tbsp cornflour in a bowl to make a paste, then add the chicken and toss to coat. 

  2. Start the stir-fry

    Heat some oil in a wide, non-stick pan over medium high heat. When hot, lift the chicken from the batter with tongs and fry in batches until golden, then remove from the pan.

    Add the peppers and 1 tbsp water to the pan and fry for 2 mins.

    Add the BLACK BEAN PASTE with 80ml water and stir well. Let it cook until it reduces by about half. 

  3. Return the chicken

    Stir in the CHILLI GARLIC SAUCE.

    Return the chicken to the pan and toss to coat in the sauce. Let it cook for 4-5 mins, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly, then turn off the heat. Meanwhile, start step 4. 

  4. Make fried rice

    In a separate pan, fry the onion in a little oil and a knob of butter for 2 mins until translucent.

    Push the onion aside and crack the 2nd egg into the pan. Let it set a little bit then scramble and mix it in.

    Add the FRIED RICE SEASONING and the rice (no need to pre-cook it) and stir fry for 2 mins.

    Stir through the spring onions

  5. Serve!

    Serve the chicken over your fried rice, with some cashews sprinkled on top.

Only thing different I did was add extra salt and pepper when cooking the chicken and peppers, and add broccoli to the rice. Was lovely clean plates all round
