    1. Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large frying pan. When oil begins to smoke, quickly stir in 2 cloves worth of the minced garlic, the ginger, spring onions and salt. Stir-fry until onion becomes translucent, about 2 minutes. Add chicken and stir until opaque, about 3 minutes. Add remaining 4 cloves minced garlic and stir. Add onions, cabbage, capsicum, peas and 1/2 of the stock and cover.
    2. In a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 of the stock, soy sauce, sugar and cornflour. Add sauce mixture to wok and stir until chicken and vegetables are coated with the thickened sauce. Serve immediately, over hot rice if desired.

    Took shortcuts. We thought this was very tasty! I did use some prepared stir fry veggies instead of chopping and I used 1 TBLS brown sugar and 1 TBLS caster sugar when making the sauce and ommitted the salt (always can be added to taste if needed). The brown sugar, even though it was just a tbls, added a nice touch. Served over white rice. Very good and would make again. Thanks!  -  18 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Even my son liked this (and he says he doesn't like onions). I used about half the spring onions and regular onions that this recipe called for. Good basic stir fry.  -  18 Jul 2008


    turned out awesome, changed recipe slightly, didnt have peanut oil, but i did have coconut oil and peanut butter added this let it get hot and only put brown sugar in not caster as this is all i had in the cupboard, and i used broccolini instead of snow peas this all i had, every thing else the same. turned out awesome i was surprised it turned out well normally if i have to adapt a recipe doesnt usually turn out the same , but it is such a good adaptable recipe it did work and very tasty, love ginger touch.  -  15 Aug 2017
