  • Place all the marinade ingredients besides the chicken into a blender and blitz until smooth.
  • Thinly slice your chicken breast and add your marinade. Leave overnight or for as long as you want.
  • Preheat your wok on a high flame. Add some vegetable oil and add the chicken. Once its about two thirds cooked add two beaten eggs. Once everything is cooked, place the contents into a bowl and place the wok back on the heat.
  • Add some more veg oil and add the peppers, carrots and spring onions. Season with salt and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the ginger and garlic and cook for a further minute.
  • Add the rice with the soy sauce, sesame oil and ketjap manis and cook until all the grains of rice have separated.
  • Taste and season. Now it’s time to plate. Lightly oil a bowl and pack the rice in tightly. Once full, place a plate on top and flip it. Remove the bowl and you should be left with a beautiful dome of stir fried rice.
  • Garnish with some extra spring onions.
  • Enjoy!
