Recipe: Tsing-Tsao Beer Teriyaki Chicken

GAWDD this is the most authentic tasting Chinese dish I've ever made!!! It's got the right, glossy thick texture,  moist chicken, sweet sticky Asian flavours- wow! Bit of a cheat using a packet in the recipe- but I didn't have any ginger in the house and knew I would need something "gingery" to set the recipe off!! As you can see, I have served this with some steamed white rice. A nice dish to serve alongside this is also stir-fried pak choy with fresh coriander, garlic oil and Chinese 5 spice.

Tsing-Tsao Beer Teriyaki Chicken (serves 2)

2 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 garlic clove, finely diced
6 spring onions
1 green pepper, seeded and diced
6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 packet blue dragon chow mein sauce
100g cashews
200ml tsing-tsao beer (or similar tasting lager)
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
½ tsp toasted sesame oil

1) Fry the garlic, spring onions, pepper and chicken in the oil for 10 minutes on a high heat, stirring often.
2) Add all the other ingredients, and cook on a high hear for a further 10 minutes (or until the sauce is thickened and glossy), stirring often. Season to taste and serve!
