Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups sushi rice, rinsed and drained
  • 750ml water
  • 4 crumbed chicken breast steaks
  • Vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
 

Dressing

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
 
  • Steamed pak choi, to serve
  • Pickled ginger, to serve
  • Sesame seeds, to serve

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
