To prepare the ingredients, rinse the brown rice well. Cut the free range chicken thighs into 3 cm chunks, slice the carrots matchsticks, peel and crush the garlic, deseed and finely chop the long red chilli, trim the green beans and cut into thirds, and slice the lemon into wedges.


Place the brown rice and water into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a medium-low heat and cover with a lid. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until the rice is tender. Drain.


Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken thigh chunks and cook, turning, for 2-3 minutes or until browned. Add the carrot and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until softened slightly. Add the garlic and the long red chilli (add the seeds for more heat) and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the salt-reduced soy sauce, stir to combine, season with black pepper and cover with a lid. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Remove the lid, add the brown sugar and green beans and stir to combine. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce is thick and syrupy and the beans are tender. Stir through the fish sauce and remove from the heat.


To serve, divide the brown rice and chicken between serving plates. Serve with the lemon wedges.
