Cut chicken fillets into small cubes. Marinate with beaten egg, salt, pepper and 1tbsp cornflour. Coat each chicken cube in the rest of the dry cornflour.

Heat the oil in a wok for deep fat frying. Fry each piece of coated chicken till golden brown and crispy. Set aside.

Heat 1tbsp of oil mixed with 1tsp of sesame oil in a clean wok. Sweat the garlic and spring onions without browning. Add in the fruit and vegetables. Stir fry for 1 minute.
