    Chinese Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry

    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sherry
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 teaspoon cornflour
    4 small chicken breasts, meat only, cut into strips
    2oz spring onions, sliced
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 tablespoon corn oil
    8oz broccoli, cut into small florets
    4oz baby corn, cut in 1/2 lengthways
    1 medium red pepper, cut into strips
    8oz carrots, cut into thin strips
    4oz mushrooms, sliced
    1 medium onion, finely chopped

    Mix the soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil and cornflour to make a marinade. Add the chicken and marinate for 30 minutes or longer. Stir fry the onion and garlic in half the oil for 2 minutes. Add the chicken and marinade to the pan, stir fry for 10 minutes and set aside. Stir fry the broccoli, baby corn, red pepper and carrots in the remaining oil for 5 minutes, add the spring onions and mushrooms and stir fry for a further 3 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan, cook for a further 3 minutes and serve - great with rice!


    This one isn't full-fledged stir-fry, but I like to make it and have veggies cooked separately.
