Ingredients

  • Basmati rice (180g)
  • Broccoli (300g)
  • Vegetarian Chicken Pieces (300g)
  • Egg (1)
  • Garlic (1 Clove)
  • Spring Onions (1 small bunch)
  • Cornstarch (1Tbsp)
  • Honey
  • Sesame Seed
  • Soy Sauce
  • Toasted Sesame Oil

Method

  • STEP 1
    Using a strainer or colander rinse the rice under cold running water, drain and transfer to a small saucepan. Add water (250ml) and bring the mixture to a boil over a high heat.
  • STEP 2
    In a medium bowl whisk together egg and cornstarch. Add the chicken pieces into the egg mixture and toss to coat. Set aside.
  • STEP 3
    Once the liquid comes to a boil stir in the mixture and cover the saucepan. Reduce the heat and cook the rice until the liquid is fully absorbed (About 15-20 minutes) Once done remove the rice from the heat and let it stand, still covered for another 5 minutes.
  • STEP 4
    Wash and cut the broccoli into bite-sized florets. Wash and trim the spring onions and finely chop.
  • STEP 5
    Heat a skillet over a medium-high heat.
  • STEP 6
    Peel and mince garlic. In a small bowl prepare the sauce by whisking together garlic, honey, soy sauce, oil and seeds. Set the mixture aside.
  • STEP 7
    Coat the bottom of the skillet with oil and cook the broccoli for about 3-4 mins, stirring frequently, until the broccoli is tender. Add the Quorn chicken, and the honey and soy mixture, and cook for 3-4 mins. Add the spring onions and cook for 1-2 mins until the sauce thickens up.
