chicken in tarragon and lime

  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 fl oz chicken stock (or water)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (fresh pref.)     
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar (or honey for richer flavour)   
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce   
  • 1 tsp sherry or rice wine    
  • 1 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped (or more if you wish)
  • 1 tsp cornflour

Put all the sauce ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to the boil. At the same time heat oil (groundnut/peanut oil) in wok and add the chicken. Stir quickly to prevent sticking. Cook for 2 minutes then add all the sauce (which should be bubbling by now) and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Serve with rice.
