I think I have written enough this past few days….so I am saving my typing energy for work tomorrow, he! he! :p

This is what we had for dinner today. Easy peasy. I served this with stir fried Choy Sum (see HERE).

Veg oil for cooking
2 to 3 chicken breast/equivalent amount in thighs if preferred - sliced or cubed to preference
Capsicum - cut into cubes (had none at home so I left it out today)
3-4 cloves garlic - minced
4 spring onions - cut 3 to 4 cm lengths
4 to 5 dried or fresh chillies - halved and deseeded (if you don't like it hot). I leave it in and it's not hot if you use the long variety of either chillies.
4 heaped tbsp Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce
4 heaped tbsp Yeo's Hot Bean Paste
1 carrot (optional) sliced thinly and diagonally. You can also add snow peas if you want. I did not because I had a separate vegetable dish
Handful of cashew nuts
Dash of sesame oil
Onion (optional) - sliced thickly

Heat oil and fry chicken in batches. Remove and set aside.

Add garlic to the oil and fry for 30 secs. Add in carrot (if using). Fry for a min and add in the chicken. Mix well.

Add in the capsicum (and peas if using) and both the sauces. Mix well. Cook for a minute or two. Add cashews, spring onion (and onion). Fry for 30 secs. Add sesame oil. Turn off heat and serve with rice and stir fried mixed vegetables.
