About this recipe: A delightfully quick, simple and authentic Chinese chicken stir fry, made with the crunchy and colourful addition of red and green peppers. Any colour of pepper would work a treat here, use what you have to hand. If you don't have any Chinese rice wine, simply use some white wine or even sherry.

  • 200g chicken breast strips
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine (Shaoxing wine)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 50g bamboo shoots
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • soy sauce, to taste
