2 teaspoons of soy sauce
¼ teaspoon of salt
1tablespoon of cornflour
Ingredients for sauce
4 tablespoons of water
1 tablespoon of white vinegar
½ teaspoon of cornflour
2 teaspoons of sweet soy sauce
2 tablespoons of sugar
Ingredients for main portion
10-ounce boneless chicken breast
1 can of longans, drained, rinsed and diced
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil or light virgin olive oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
Mix the cornflour, salt and soy sauce in a bowl. Set it aside for later use.
Combine all sauce ingredients in separate bowl and mix well.
Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and soak in the marinade for at least 30 minutes. Soak the longan fruit in salted water for 15 minutes, then drain and slice in half.
Use a skillet and cook the chicken using the olive oil. As the chicken becomes tender, add the diced pepper, sauce and longan fruit.
Cook for another 2 minutes and the sauce will thicken as the chicken finishes cooking. Serve over jasmine or brown rice.
