  • Heat your wok or frying pan, then add the vegetable oil.
  • Add chopped garlic, stir until lightly golden then add the chicken, ground black pepper and light soy sauce. Stir for 2 minutes.
  • Next add the broccoli and oyster sauce. Stir for 1 minute.
  • Add the carrots, stir for another minute. Add a little water so that the pan is not too dry.
  • Lastly add the red pepper and keep stirring until everything is cooked but try not to overcook the vegetables. I think with a stir fry, it tastes best when the vegetables are a bit crunchy.
  • Before dishing up add the sesame oil, just to give it that little extra flavour.

Notes

When cooking a stir fry, don’t throw in all the vegetables in one go. Try to put the ones that take longest in first then add the others in stages. This way your vegetables will get cooked evenly, nothing gets overcooked and mushy.

Always taste your food! If after following the recipes and you find it too much or too little in some flavour then adjust it to your liking. If it is too salty let’s say, then add little water to tone it down.
