Juice from 1 x lemon

2 x tsp of rice wine vinegar

1 x Tablespoon of sesame oil

1 x tablespoon of maple syrup or agave nectar

 

OPTION 1- Chicken San Choy Bau

Ingredients:

(I use organic where possible)

·      2 x Chicken Breasts -minced. Note: I prefer to mince my own as a lot of store bought mince contains a lot of other ingredients and preservatives as well meat scraps. I use either the thermo mix or a food processor to do so.

·      2 x tablespoons of Tamari

·      1 x tablespoon of Maple Syrup

·      1 x teaspoon of sesame oil

·      Coconut oil for pan frying 

·      3 cm cube of fresh ginger- finely grated 

·      1 x Teaspoon of fish sauce

·      1 x clove of garlic (optional)

·      ½ brown onion (optional)

Method:

Step 1. In a large fry pan on medium heat add the coconut oil as well as garlic and onion if using, Sautee for a few minutes.

Step 2: Add the chicken breast, tamari, maple syrup, sesame oil and ginger. (If you like you can also had a handful of fresh coriander otherwise add to the top as a garnish when served). Continuously stir and use a wooden spoon to gently break up the mince as it cooks. Once it has been cooked through, set aside in a bowl.
