Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Chinese Five Spice


  1. Combine Kikkoman Soy Sauce, minced garlic, rice vinegar, ginger and Chinese five spice in a large bowl and stir until mixed well. Add the chicken and stir until fully coated. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes. (For a deeper flavour marinate for approx. 2 hrs.).
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the sweet corn, spring onions, French beans and onion.
  3. Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Add chicken mixture and stir fry in batches for about 3 minutes or until brown, taking care not to burn. Transfer each batch to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  4. Add spring onion, beans, red onion and corn to wok and stir fry for about 2 minutes or until onion is soft, but still tender. Add chicken, stock, extra Kikkoman Soy Sauce, garlic minced and sesame oil. Bring to the boil.
  5. Combine cornflour and a little cold water in a small bowl. Mix well. Add to the stir fry mixture and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
  6. Place in individual serving bowls and sprinkle with chilli and sesame seeds. Serve with steamed jasmine rice.
