• Boil the kettle. Half-fill a medium saucepan with the boiling water. • Add basmati rice and a pinch of salt and cook, uncovered, over a high heat until tender, 12 minutes. • Drain and return to saucepan. Stir in chicken-style stock powder. Cover to keep warm.


• While rice is cooking, drain pineapple, reserving the liquid. Thinly slice carrot into rounds. Cut capsicum, red onion and pineapple slices (see ingredients) into bite-sized chunks. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Stir-fry the prepped veggies and pineapple until tender, 4-6 minutes. • Add ginger paste and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.

TIP: Add a splash of water to help the vegetables cook faster!


• Cut chicken tenderloins into bite-sized chunks. • Return frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When oil is hot, cook chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through,4-6 minutes. • Stir in roasted cashews, sweet & sour sauce, the soy sauce and honey. Add a splash of reserved pineapple liquid and a splash of water, then stir to combine. Return the veggies to the pan and cook until bubbling, 1 minute. Season to taste.

TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.


• Divide rice between bowls. Top with sweet and sour chicken stir-fry. • Sprinkle with torn coriander to serve.
