This is a great weeknight dinner for the kiddywinks. It’s quick and super easy and transports me right back to happy childhood Chinese restaurant memories.


You'll Need

  • 2 tbs fresh ginger grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely crushed
  • 4 tbs runny honey
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs sesame seeds
  • 3 tbs rice bran oil + 1 tbs extra for frying
  • 4 chicken thighs, diced
  • iceberg lettuce (to serve)
  • crushed peanuts (to serve)




Put the ginger, garlic, honey, soy and oil in a large zip lock bag. Add the chicken and mix it around to coat well in the marinade. Place in the fridge for at least an hour.

Heat the oil in a wok on a medium heat. Add the chicken and all the marinade, and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the chicken. Stir fry for 4-5 minutes or until cooked through. Arrange the lettuce and peanuts on a platter and serve with rice, if desired.
