Sambal Oelek chilli chicken

I picked up a jar of Sambal Oelek a while ago (I can’t remember why) but I found it hiding at the back of the cupboard unloved tonight, so I thought, I can do something with this…

250 grams Chicken Breast
1 tbs sambal oelek
1 tbs soy sauce
1 clove of Garlic, crushed
1 tbs grated fresh ginger
2 tbs peanut oil
200 grams green beans
2 tbs Oyster sauce
Chopped coriander and toasted slivered almonds to garnish
Steamed rice to serve (jasmine rice works really well with this one)

Start by thinly slicing the chicken and toss it into a bowl. Throw in the soy sauce, Sambal Oelek, ginger and half the oil. Set this aside for 5 minutes to let the flavours happening

Heat up the rest of the oil in a wok until it is just about to smoke. Toss in the chicken and quickly cook it. Once it is cooked, put it aside so you can head on to the vegies…
Roughly clean out your wok (DON’T WASH IT!) and toss in your beans and lightly stir fry them with the Oyster sauce.

Plate it up, rice first, the chicken and the beans on the side. Sprinkle the chicken with the almonds and the coriander.
