I love Chinese fast food, i`m trying to eat healthy and in fast food there is so much salt and oil. This dish taste like Chinese fast food, but less oil and salt.

You need: Serves 4

Rice/noodles

3 chicken filet

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp ginger paste

1 tsp whole pepper

1/2 tsp sugar

2 dl chicken/vegetable stock

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp oyster sauce

1/2 broccoli

1 red bell pepper

1 red chili

1 pk sugar peas

3 tbsp cornflour

Boil the rice/noodles.

Put the whole pepper in a mortar,smash it.

Cut the chicken in small pieces, clean the vegetables at cut them as small or big as you want them. Set them to side.

Fry the chicken, while the chicken is frying you make the sauce.

Mix the chicken stock, whole pepper, soy sauce, garlic, oyster sauce, chili, sugar, ginger paste and corn flour.

Add the vegetables to the chicken, fry some more. When the broccoli is getting tender you add the sauce mix. The cornflour is a thickener and reacts too heat. Cook for 5 min and your done!.
