1Cut the chicken into bite size strips and finely chop carrot, green beans, cabbage, red pepper and cut 2 tomatoes into quarters. Stir fry the chicken until sealed and then add the carrot, green beans and red pepper. When the chicken and veg are almost cooked add the cabbage and tomatoes and stri fry until they are cooked.
2Set aside the cooked chicken and veg mixture in a bowl.
3Add the cold rice to the wok/pan you were just using for stir frying the chicken and veg and add some light soy sauce. Stir fry the rice until it is all coated with soy sauce and the grains are quite seperate.
4Once the soy sauce is mixed into the rice and it is beginning to warm through, add some sweet chilli sauce to the rice/soy sauce mix. This gives the fried rice a nice sweet and slightly spicy flavour.
5Mix the sweet chilli sauce thoroughly into the rice and then add the chicken and veg mixture. Combine the rice, chicken and veg and make sure it’s piping hot.

Easy Rice Pudding
A simple and supremely satisfying dessert, rice pudding is pure comfort in a bowl. It's easy to get there too! Just simmer white rice with whole milk, sugar, and a pinch of salt until the grains are tender, plump, and creamy, then stir in a little vanilla or almond extract while the pudding's still warm. Top however you like (fresh berries in season, dried fruit, toasted nuts for a crunchy contrast, a sprinkle of cinnamon, etc.) -- you really can't go wrong.
