Ingredients

  • Chicken breast, thinly sliced (400g)

  • Ginger, minced (1 tbsp)

  • Red pepper flakes (1 tsp)

  • Soy sauce (2 tbsp)

  • Honey (1 tbsp)

  • Olive oil (2 tbsp)

  • Salt to taste

  • Fresh coriander for garnish

Instructions

1

Notes

It's essential to prepare your ingredients before heating the pan - a concept known as mise en place. Use a sharp knife for even cuts as this ensures uniform cooking. Marinate the chicken with salt, pepper, and a dash of soy sauce for extra flavor. Don’t overcook the vegetables; keeping them slightly crunchy retains nutrients and texture. Lastly, feel free to experiment with different veggies and spices.
