How to make it
- Put rice on to cook (I always use my rice cooker for this)
- Mix all marinade ingredients together, I say approximate because it's not dreadfully important; I always just sort of tip it in. Use a good splash of olive oil (or your preferred cooking oil) to blend it all together. It should be a reasonably runny paste once you've mixed the tamari in too.
- Add chicken to the marinade, stir through so it's all well covered and allow to stand while you prep your other ingredients.
- Stirfry chicken in a large wok or pan, along with any excess marinade. Cook until it's browning, stirring occasionally to make sure it isn't sticking. If it is, you may want a dash more oil. If you're choosing to use a vegetable that may want a quick fry, I add it now too.
- Check your rice, if it's close to done, I add my frozen peas to the top and replace the lid on the cooker-it steams them for the last minute.
- Once chicken is nicely brown, add rice to the wok, stirring through well so it collects all excess spice and adopts a nice fresh colour from the tumeric. Add vegetables, and mix through.
- It's here I add a small dash of chicken stock to the rice, if I want the extra flavour.
- Lastly, toss fresh parsley and shallots through and serve.
