  • 1½ cm fresh ginger (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  3. Remove the chicken from the pan, add a few more sprays of Low Calorie Cooking Spray then fry off the onions, ginger, garlic and mushrooms
  4. Cook until they start to soften
  5. Add peppers, baby corn, tomato puree, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar. Stir then add the Coke/Pepsi. Stir and bring to the boil.
  6. Stir in the half a stock cube and the stock pot and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes
  7. When the sauce has started to thicken and go a bit syrupy, return the chicken to the pan and stir in the spring onions
  8. Simmer for another 10 minutes. Check the consistency and if it's not quite thick enough simmer for a bit longer, until the required consistency is reached
