Hello everyone. How are you all doing. I know I have been quiet on the blog, it’s not intentional. So many things came up at the same time, so I had to leave this on the back burner. But all that has been sorted now.
So today I am making a stir fry sauce. I saw it on a takeaway menu and I decided to recreate it at home. The best part about recreating meals is that you make it with less sodium and any other additives. You can control what goes into the meal.
Without further ado, I went shopping, got my ingredients ready and then set up to make this delicious dish.
Ok let’s get started shall we 🙂
- 600g of chicken breast
- Yellow pepper
- Red pepper
- Green pepper
- Baby corn(optional)
- Green beans

- 1 small sized ginger minced
- 1 large white onions
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 1/2 a cup of chicken stock
- 1/2 a cup of light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
- Chinese five spice
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Medium sized sauce pan or wok
- Wooden spoon
Prep time: 10 minutes

Chop the chicken breast into medium sized. Don’t forget it will shrink. Do be careful not to make it too small.
