    1. Heat groundnut oil in a large frying pan. When oil begins to smoke, quickly stir in 2 cloves minced garlic, ginger, spring onions and salt. Stir-fry until onion becomes translucent, about 2 minutes. Add chicken and stir until opaque, about 5 minutes. Add remaining 4 cloves minced garlic and stir. Add onions, cabbage, red capsicum, peas and 1/2 of the stock and cover.
    2. In a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 of the stock, soy sauce, sugar and cornflour. Add sauce mixture to pan and stir until chicken and vegetables are coated with the thickened sauce. Serve immediately, over hot rice if desired.

    This was a very tasty stir fry, however, don't make the same mistake I did. I used purple cabbage and the leftovers turned blue!  -  18 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We thought this was very tasty! I did use some frozen stir fry veggies instead of chopping and I used 1 TBLS brown sugar and 1 TBLS white sugar when making the sauce and ommitted the salt (always can be added to taste if needed). The brown sugar, even though it was just a tbls, added a nice touch. Served over white rice and some chow-mein noodles. Very good and would make again. Thanks!  -  27 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Even my son liked this(and he says he doesn't like onions). I used about half the green onions and regular onions that this recipe called for. I also used about a 1/2 tsp of ground ginger instead of the fresh ginger. Good basic stir fry.  -  22 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
