This glossy, sticky chicken stir-fry is bursting with garlic and lemongrass, then topped with pops of fresh mint, coriander and chilli. Serve it with steamed rice for a simple weeknight dinner that celebrates Vietnamese flavours.
1 tbsp peanut oil
600g (1.3 lb) chicken thigh fillets, excess fat trimmed, cut into 3cm (1.2 inches) pieces
1 tbsp caster sugar
spring onion, sliced, to serve
fresh coriander sprigs, to serve

Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Add half of the chicken and stir-fry for 4 minutes or until golden. Use tongs to transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
Add the sugar to the wok along with 2 tbsp water. Simmer for 5 minutes or until a caramel forms. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Add the Vietnamese Style Lemongrass & Garlic and 1/2 cup water. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the water has evaporated and the chicken is sticky.
