Prep time: 20 mins Cooking time: 20 mins Serves 4 1 egg 2 tsp sesame oil 2 tbsp corn oil 200g rice, cooked and left to go cold 100g green peas 4 spring onions, finely chopped 1-2 tsp soy sauce 1 tsp oil 1 chicken breast, finely sliced 200g small prawns, cleaned and deveined 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 Whisk together the egg and sesame oil. Heat the corn oil in a wok or large frying pan. When it’s shimmering and almost smoking, add the rice and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or until completely heated through.
2 Add the peas and spring onions to the rice. Cook for 3 minutes, season well with soy sauce and freshly ground pepper, then push to one side of the wok.
3 Pour the beaten egg mixture into the centre of the wok and leave for about 10 seconds so it begins to set. Using a spatula, stir the egg to break it up and then toss around with the rice.
4 In a separate pan, add the oil and cook the chicken for 6-7 minutes. Add the prawns and chilli. Add the rice, stir-fry for 1 minute, and serve immediately.
