We’re excited to have today received a recipe box of goodies from the lovely people at Gousto (www.gousto.co.uk). Having appeared on Dragon’s Den once upon a time, the concept behind Gousto is that customers choose from a selection of recipes and have a box of fresh ingredients and recipe cards delivered in order to cook them.
While we will be writing up a full review, we tried our first recipe tonight and can’t wait to share it. This Chinese Chicken Stir Fry is with rice, where we would normally go for noodles, and was absolutely delicious. Guosto change their choice of recipes each week but don’t fear, we’ve included this recipe below:
- 250g Chicken diced
- 1 Tsp five spice
- 475ml Water
- 1 Medium onion
- 1 Courgette
- 1 Red pepper
- 15g Fresh ginger
- 1-2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 30ml Rice vinegar
- 5 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1 Tsp sugar
- 10g Fresh coriander
- 150g Basmati rice
Season the chicken with the five spice and set aside.
Add the rice, a little salt and 375ml of water to a pan – cover and bring to the boil over a high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer gently with the lid on for 15-20min or until all the water is absorbed. Once done, set aside until you are ready for it.
Meanwhile, thinly slice the courgette, slice the pepper and finely chop the onion, ginger and coriander.
Add 1-2tbsp of vegetable oil to a large pan over a high heat. Add the onion and fry for 1 minute before adding the courgette, red pepper and ginger. Cook for 1 minute.
Next add 100ml of water to the pan and cook for another minute before adding the chicken. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the rice vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Mix in the rice and coriander to the pan and serve. Enjoy and lookout for our full review of the service coming soon!
