1 large garlic clove
30ml / 2 tbsp sunflower oil
275g/ 10 oz lean chicken, thinly sliced

30ml / 2 tbsp oyster sauce
pinch sugar

25g / 1oz / l/4 cup salted peanuts, lightly crushed, and coriander leaves, to garnish

Method:

Thinly slice the lemon grass or lemon rind. Peel and chop the ginger and garlic. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Add the lemon grass or lemon rind, ginger and garlic, and stir-fry for 30 seconds until brown.

Add the chicken and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Then add the vegetables and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the vegetables are almost cooked. Make this speedy dish a little hotter by adding more fresh root ginger.

Finally stir in the oyster sauce, sugar and seasoning to taste and stir-fry for another minute to mix and blend well. Serve at once, sprinkled with the peanuts and coriander leaves and accompanied with cooked rice.
