  1. Add the basmati rice and 350ml [700ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat.

  7. Once the chicken is cooked, return the pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the carrot matchstickschopped green beans and baby corn and cook for 3 min or until beginning to soften. Add the sweet ‘n’ sour sauce and cook for a further 2-3 min or until the vegetables are tender
  8. Meanwhile, trim then slice the spring onions finely. Once the vegetables are tender, remove the pan from the heat and add the sliced spring onion and golden chicken. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up
  9. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Serve the super sweet ‘n’ sour chicken over the basmati rice
