Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a large saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the jasmine rice, water (for the rice) and the salt and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, cut the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Trim the green beans and slice into 2cm pieces. Cut the capsicum into 1cm pieces. Cut the chicken breast into 2cm chunks.


In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, soy sauce and water (for the mayo). TIP: Keep the mayo plain if the kids would prefer!


Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the carrot, green beans, capsicum and a splash of water and cook, tossing, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl. Cover to keep warm.


Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook, tossing, until cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, add the Sichuan garlic paste and toss to coat.


Divide the garlic rice between bowls. Top with the veggies and the Sichuan chicken. Spoon any remaining juices from the pan onto the chicken. Drizzle over the soy mayo. Garnish the adults' portions with the crispy shallots.
