    Serves: 2 

    • 200g uncooked short-grain white rice
    • 475ml water
    • 250ml chicken stock
    • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
    • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
    • 75g shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
    2. Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the soy sauce and dark brown soft sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce heat to low; keep warm.
    3. Heat several tablespoons of the chicken sauce in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and shiitake mushrooms in the sauce until the onion has softened, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken, spring onions and a few more tablespoons of the sauce; continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre, about 5 minutes more. Spread the chicken mixture evenly over the frying pan; pour the beaten egg on top. Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle with the mange-tout. Cook and stir until the egg has firmed and is no longer runny, about 3 minutes.
    4. Divide the rice between two bowls and spoon the egg mixture evenly overtop. Pour additional chicken sauce over the rice to serve.
