Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Boil a kettle

Add the black rice to a pot of plenty of boiled water and cook over a high heat for 30 min or until it's tender (it will still have a slight bite once cooked)

Once cooked, drain, return it to the pot and set aside

2 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Meanwhile, peel and chop (or grate) 1 [2] of the garlic cloves finely (you'll use the rest later!)

Peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and chop (or grate) finely

Slice each chicken breast into 4 strips

3 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Add the chopped ginger, chopped garlic, soy sauce and 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar to a medium bowl – this is your marinade

Add the chicken strips and give everything a good mix up, then set aside until later

4 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Meanwhile, cut the pak choi in half, separating the white and green parts

Peel and slice the remaining garlic clove[s] finely

Trim and slice the spring onions finely

Add the mayonnaise and rice wine vinegar to a bowl and combine – this is your Japanese-style mayo

5 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the white pak choi, toasted sesame seeds and sliced garlic with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until the pak choi has started to soften, then add the greens parts and cook for a further 1 min

Transfer the cooked pak choi to a plate and keep the pan for later

6 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Meanwhile, add the cornflour to a large bowl

Add the marinated chicken strips, leaving most of the marinade behind

Give everything a good mix up so the chicken strips are fully coated in cornflour

7 Chicken Karaage With Black Rice

Return the pan to a high heat with enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan

Once hot, add the floured chicken and cook for 3 min on each side or until browned – this is your chicken karaage
