Preparation

Method (Chicken Nibbles):

Step One – In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients together before adding the chicken nibbles. Toss the chicken in the marinade and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, turning in the marinade to ensure that each piece is coated.

Step Two – Remove the chicken pieces from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven at 180c.

Step Three – Place the chicken pieces on a tray and bake for 35-40 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the oven and set aside to rest for 5 minutes covered in aluminium foil before serving. 


Method (Green Fried Rice):

Step One – Prepare the rice according to the instructions on the packet. Drain and rinse under hot water. Allow to cool at room temperature on a dinner plate, spreading out to ensure the layer of rice is thin and even.

Step Two – Place the plate of rice in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

Step Three – Prepare all the vegetables and herbs.

Step Four - Over a medium – high heat, warm the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the ginger and garlic, stir until aromatic.

Step Five – Add the vegetables to wok/pan along with a dash of water, stir until just cooked through. Remove from the wok/pan into a bowl and set aside.

Step Six – Add a dash more oil to the wok/pan, along with the soy sauce, oyster sauce and rice. Stir to ensure the rice is coated in the sauce and doesn’t stick to the bottom of the wok/pan.

Step Seven – Return the vegetables to the pan. Stir to combine. Serve.
