This is another easy and quickly prepared dish which is enjoyable to eat and offers a flavour which is rather different in a chicken dish. It is also one which can be prepared in advance and cooked quickly after a day's outing.

 Serves 4


500gr chicken fillets, skinned and cut into strips
Olive oil for cooking
Toasted sesame seeds


4 TB virgin olive oil
2 TB soy sauce
1 TB plum sauce
1 tsp nam pla (fish sauce)

1 clove garlic, crushed


Prepare chicken strips.  Mix together marinade ingredients, add chicken and toss well to coat.  Allow to marinate for at least several hours.

To cook, heat a little oil in a wok or pan, add the chicken strips (in batches, if necessary) cook through, tossing often to prevent sticking.

Turn onto a serving platter,sprinkle generously with sesame seeds (also chopped parsley, if desired). Serve with stir-fried vegetables.

Excellent with a Yarra Valley white wine of choice.

This is another recipe which is really great for an easy meal after a day out! Chicken can be marinated in advance, refrigerated and vegetables prepared for stir-fry and also refrigerated. Enjoy your life in the Hills and the Yarra Valley & stay safe!
