  1. Boil a pan of water for the rice.  Rinse the rice under running water then add to the pan. Rapidly boil on a high heat for 25 minutes then drain, put back in the pan, cover with a cloth and leave off the heat until the chicken is cooked.
  2. While the rice cooks chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Chop the base from the pak choi and cut the pak choi widthways into 4. Finely slice the spring onions, separating the white and green parts. Slice the chili in half and thinly chop widthways.
  3. Peel the garlic, crush it under your knife then dice finely. Peel the ginger using the edge of a spoon and grate or dice the ginger very finely.
  4. Mix the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, and rice wine vinegar in a bowl and stir in the 5 spice. Add as much of the red chili as desired. Tip this mixture over the chicken and marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Heat the oil in a pan on a medium-high heat and add the chicken when hot. Cook for around 8 minutes until caramelized on the outside and the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
  6. Every 3 minutes add 1 tbsp of water into the pan - this will de-glaze the pan (strip off the burnt bits that give the sauce extra taste).
  7. When the chicken is just cooked add the whites of the spring onions and 30 seconds later add the pak choi. Stir fry for 2 minutes until the pak choi has wilted.
  8. Serve with the brown rice and sprinkle over the greens of the spring onions. Enjoy!
