This is a simple chicken stir-fry and I don't feel like using a wok. Your basic East Asian ingredients and sauces. A dish that anyone can put together.

Ingredients that you'll need:

500gm chicken thighs - - cut to 2 cm pieces
1 red capsicum - cut to 2 cm pieces
1/2 yellow onion - cut to 2 cm pieces

1 knob of ginger - sliced
1 stalk curry leaves
(There was broccoli stem in the video, I just happened to have some around)

Chicken marinade 1 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine 1 tbsp corn starch 1 tbsp sesame oil 1/2 teaspoon white pepper powder (or to taste) Sauces added into stirfry 2 tbsp soy sauce 2-3 tbsp oyster sauce 1 tbsp sesame oil 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine Optional suggestions Add 1 -2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce for some colour and sweetness

Method:
  • Mix the cut chicken with all the marinade ingredients.
  • leave in the fridge for at least an hour, up to overnight.
  • When ready to start frying, take chicken out of the fridge.
  • In a large frying pan or wok, heat some oil over medium high heat.
  • When oil is hot, add chicken pieces into the pan.
  • Cook for about 15 mins until almost cooked through and there is some browning on the chicken.
  • Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Wipe the pan down
  • In the same pan, add some oil and heat pan - Medium high heat.
