This very simple Thai stir-fry makes a great family meal, and you don't have to worry about having a perfect wok technique.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 Lilydale chicken thighs, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp kecap manis
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 coriander plant, stalks and roots roughly chopped, leaves reserved
  • 5 button mushrooms, quartered
  • ½ brown onion, thickly sliced into wedges
  • ½ small carrot, thinly sliced into half moons
  • 1 large red chilli, thickly sliced
  • 2 thick spring onions, cut on the diagonal into 5cm lengths
  • pinch of sugar
  • dash of fish sauce
  • 1 tsp cornflour mixed into ¼ cup of cold water
  • cooked rice, to serve
  • lime wedge, to serve

METHOD

  1. Coat the chicken in the oyster sauce, kecap manis, dark soy sauce and sesame oil and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat a wok over high heat and add the vegetable oil. Add the garlic and coriander (stalks and roots) and stir-fry for about 1 minute until fragrant, add the chicken and stir-fry until the chicken is lightly browned.
  3. Add the mushrooms, onion and carrot and toss for a minute or two until the vegetables are softened, then add the chilli and spring onion and toss together. Add the sugar and fish sauce. Add a little water if the mixture looks too dry, then thicken with as much of the cornflour mixture as is necessary to give the sauce a silky consistency.
  4. Serve with cooked rice and scatter with the coriander leaves, and serve with a wedge of lime.
