My daughter is a big fan of South East Asian cooking. Thai and Vietnamese cuisines are very popular in Australia. This chicken stir-fry is a copy of my daughter’s stir-fry. The sauce is a bit too sweet for me, buy my daughter says I always complain the sweetness of food at any Thai restaurants and this is the right sweetness. You would wish to reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe.
