  • 2 chicken breasts on the bone
  • 4 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sweet white wine

  • 2½ cups short- or long-grain white rice
  • 3¾ cups (30 fl oz) cold water
  • 6 shallots, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch)


1 Chop chicken into small pieces and place in a bowl with soy sauce, wine and ginger. Allow chicken to marinate for 30 minutes.
