Instructions
1

In a medium saucepan, bring the water (for the rice) to the boil. Add the jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered for another 10-15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and all the water is absorbed. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek

2

While the rice is cooking, slice the red capsicum into 0.5cm strips. Trim the sugar snap peas. Thinly slice the long green chilli (if using). In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey and water (for the sauce).

3

In a large frying pan or wok, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the red capsicum and cook for 2 minutes or until softened. Add the sugar snap peas and honey-soy mixture and cook for a further 1-2 minutes, or until tender. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm

4

Chop the chicken breast into 2cm chunks. In a medium bowl, combine the salt, pepper, Chinese five spice and plain flour. Add the chicken breast and toss to coat. TIP: Chinese five spice has a strong anise flavour, use less if you're not a fan!

5

Wash out the pan then return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the chicken and cook, tossing occasionally, for 6-7 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. TIP: Add a drizzle more oil if necessary!

6

Divide the jasmine rice between plates and top with the honey-soy veggies and Chinese salt & pepper chicken. Sprinkle with the long green chilli (if using) and black sesame seeds (see ingredients list).
