Super yummy Chinese chicken & stir-fried vegetables served over rice and topped with cashew nuts.
1. Place rice in a saucepan, cover with x 1.5 amount of water (see notes). Cover with a lid, cook over low heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, stand for 5 minutes. Stir carefully with a fork.

2. Heat a large pan with oil (see notes) over high heat. Add chicken strips and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden and nearly cooked through.

3. Add vegetables to the pan with chicken and stir-fry for further 3-4 minutes. Crush garlic and grate ginger (to yield roughly 1 tbsp), add to the pan as you go.

4. Combine 1 tbsp cornflour with 1 1/2 cup water, 3 tbsp soy sauce and 2 tbsp sugar. Stir into pan, bring to a simmer and allow to thicken.

5. Serve chicken stir-fry over rice. Top with cashew nuts.
