Medium Pan
Large Non-Stick Pan



• In a medium saucepan, heat butter with a dash of olive oil over medium heat. Cook half the garlic paste until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. • Add the water and a generous pinch of salt and bring to the boil. • Add jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove from heat and keep covered until rice is tender and water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek! Little cooks: Older kids can help add the rice to the saucepan under adult supervision. Be careful, the water is boiling!


• While rice is cooking, cut chicken drumstick fillet into 2cm chunks. • When the rice has 10 minutes remaining, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook Asian stir-fry mix until tender, 4-5 minutes. • Add remaining garlic paste and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Season. Transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.


• While veggies are cooking, combine garlic & herb seasoning, the plain flour and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. • Return frying pan to high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes. Add sweet chilli sauce, toss to coat and cook until slightly reduced, 1 minute.

TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.


• Divide garlic rice between bowls. Top with stir-fried veggies and sweet chilli chicken. • Garnish with crispy shallots and serve with mayonnaise. Enjoy!

Little cooks: Add the finishing touch by sprinkling over the garnish!
