Stir Fry Chicken with Ginger, Snow Peas and Pumpkin

With our new little boy, time is more precious than ever, so super quick meals are the order of the day! Stir fries are quick to prepare, fast to cook, and there’s not too much washing up either – that’s three big ticks in my book!


  • 3 chicken thigh fillets, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp shaoxing wine (or dry sherry)
  • 2 tsps cornflour
  • 1 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger, cut into strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup pumpkin, thinly sliced

  • 3 tbsps oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock

  • In a bowl, combine the chicken with 1tbsp of the soy sauce, the sesame oil, shaoxing wine and cornflour. Mix well and set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
