Ingredients

Basic Jasmine Rice

Sauce

Chile Chicken

Directions

  1. For the rice: Place the rice in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, and add the boiling water. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then cover it with a tight-fitting lid, and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover the pan, and remove it from the heat. Fluff up the rice grains with a fork, and serve immediately. 
  2. For the sauce: In a blender, puree the garlic, tomatoes, ginger, chopped chile, red pepper, water, ketchup, and brown sugar. 
  3. For the chicken: Heat a wok over a high heat, and add the groundnut oil. Add the chicken to the hot pan, and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the pieces start to turn brown. Add the zucchini, and red peppers and stir-fry together for another 1 minute. Pour in the sauce, and bring everything to a boil. 
  4. Season the dish with the soy sauce and garnish with the spring onions, and serve immediately with the jasmine rice.

Cook’s Note

I love a chilli chicken stir-fry with plenty of sauce - this is an easy delicious recipe you can make at home without the use of bought-in sauces. It is chilli, tangy and sweet with plenty of heat from the ginger. Add some cooked noodles or serve with rice and the results are fabulous.
