- Note 1 You will see the peanut oil in the photo and listed in the recipe twice. This is because we need it both in the stir fry sauce and to cook the garlic and chicken mince in the pan.
- Note 2 You can use the equivalent amount of Hoisin Sauce instead of Oyster if you prefer/that is the one you already have in the pantry.
- Note 3 Some reader's will find this too much sugar if they are after a super healthy stir fry recipe. In which case, reduce this to 1 teaspoon of brown sugar or omit entirely. If omitting use the equivalent measure of water instead of sugar in the recipe. This will balance the sweet/saltiness of the recipe.
- Note 4 This will be with the Asian foods in the supermarket. It is sold in a tall bottle and has a long shelf life. It has a unique flavour and is excellent to use in stir frys or other Asian recipes.
