    1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the olive oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir the oyster sauce into the mixture; season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and mix; cover and cook for 10 minutes. Add the tomato, carrot and celery; cover again and cook another 5 minutes. Cook the chicken pieces until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear. Fold the mangetout into the mixture.
    2. Whisk the cornflour and water together in a small bowl until no lumps remain; stir into the liquid in the frying pan. Allow the mixture to simmer until the sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.

    Perfect recipe. I followed the directions and the meal came out exactly as expected. I wouldn't change a thing. I was looking for a WOK meal that was easy and tasty, and this is the one. Thank you!!!!!  -  12 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my girlfriend who is Filipino and she said it was nostalgic. I followed this recipe precisely as I have predominantly cooked European dishes and it has turned out great.  -  27 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It's good. But 1 tablespoon does not mix into 1 teaspoon of water. I used 2 teaspoons.  -  27 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
