  • 100g green beans, chopped
  • 1 red or yellow pepper, finely chopped
  • ½ medium broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 150g cooked chicken (or any other meat), roughly chopped

  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds


  • STEP 1

    Heat half the vegetable oil in a wok or a frying pan over a medium-high heat, and stir-fry the onions, carrots and green beans for 5 mins. Add the peppers, broccoli and chicken, and stir-fry for 3 mins more.
