A wonderful recipe created by food vloggers the Dumpling Sisters that uses the ingredients for a traditional chicken and leek pie to make a classic stir-fry. Tender chicken thighs meet with deliciously authentic Chinese flavours in this spicy main that can be rustled up in no time, making it the perfect no-frills weeknight meal.
- Combine the marinade ingredients with 2 tbsp water in a bowl. Add the chicken pieces and stir well. Set aside until needed.
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok over a high heat. Add half of the garlic and ginger and fry briefly until fragrant. Add the chicken strips and cook for 6-8 minutes until golden. Remove and set aside.
- In the same wok, heat the remaining oil. Fry the rest of the garlic and ginger, along with the chilli. Add the leeks and red pepper. Sprinkle in 1 tbsp water to create some steam and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until the vegetables have softened.
- Return the chicken to the wok and drizzle in the dark soy sauce. Stir-fry until evenly mixed and the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat remaining.
- This goes really well with steamed rice.
