My husband and I both love this meal. It is so simple to make and you can use any veg you fancy. I cook it for a lot less time than stated though. I give the onions a couple of minutes, then add the ginger for 30 seconds, add the rice, veg (I've used peppers and carrots in the past) and stock and cook for 5 minutes, then I add the chicken (and any veg that needs less cooking like mange tout) for the last 5 minutes. Et voila...delicious

Very nice! My partner said it reminded him of something his chinese grandmother used to make. I just used peas in mine and served with kale as I didn't have any other vegetables. Will definitely make again!

Very basic but tasted nice. I used anything I had in the fridge and added sesame oil and sesame seeds to the chicken-tasty!

this was really yummy. i was surprised it tasted so good for so little ingredients. i used carrots and mangetout for the veg. also, i used 100g of rice for 2 people and i found that this was a perfect amount. i am glad i didnt do 175g! but maybe that is just personal preference.

Loved this recipe! It had so much flavour! Used purple sprouting broccoli, carrots and frozen peas. Only used a little ginger as I'm new to that flavour, but will add a bit more next time. Can't wait to have it again next week!
