  • Take the chicken out the wok/pot and place on a plate with a paper towel under to absorb some of the oil.
  • Place the sauce mixture in a large enough wok/ Pan to fit all the chicken in (alternatively you can half the sauce and cook it in 2 batches with the chicken if you do not have a big enough pan) heat the sauce on a medium heat until it starts to thicken, and then add in the chicken.
  • Toss the chicken through the sauce until all covered and then remove from heat.
