This is a very simple but very tasty dish - but you must allow the chicken to marinate for 3-4 hours for the flavours to mature.

- 6 chicken breasts
- a 50g / 2 oz piece of fresh ginger
- juice of 3 limes or 2 large lemons
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3 large yellow peppers
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- Skin the chicken breasts and cut them in bite-sized matchsticks.
- Peel the ginger and cut into very thin matchsticks.
- Mix the ginger and chicken well together, season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, pour over the lime or lemon juice.
- Cover and leave in a cool place to marinate for 3-4 hours.
- De-seed the peppers and cut into long, thin strips.
- Heat the oil in a heavy pan and slowly cook the peppers, stirring regularly, until very soft - this will take 20-30 minutes.
- Remove the peppers with a slotted spoon, drain as much oil as possible from the peppers back into the pan and set aside.
- With a slotted spoon, remove the chicken and ginger from pan, reserving the juices.
- Reheat the oil and briskly fry the chicken and ginger, without burning, for 3-4 minutes or until cooked.
- Add the marinating juices and stir together for another minute.
- Remove from the heat, mix in the peppers thoroughly and serve warm or at room temperature with lightly cooked broccoli or a green salad.
