Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, mange-tout, water chestnuts and pak choi; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the wok and wipe the wok clean.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the wok. Stir in the garlic and ginger; cook a few seconds until the garlic begins to turn golden brown. Stir in the chicken and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the wine, sugar and chicken stock; bring to the boil. Dissolve the cornflour in the water and stir into the simmering sauce. Once the sauce returns to a simmer, stir until thick and clear, about 30 seconds. Return the vegetables to the wok and toss until hot and coated with the sauce.
