- 2 tsp Soy sauce
- 2 tsp Fish sauce
- ½ – 1 tsp black soy sauce
- 1 ½ tsp Sugar
Combine chicken with Golden Mountain Sauce and sugar; set aside.
Heat a wok or a large sauté pan over medium high heat, add marinated chicken and let brown on one side. Once browned, toss the chicken and cook until done. Remove from pan and set aside.
In the same wok, add a little more oil to coat the bottom, and heat over medium high heat. Add onion, garlic and chili flakes and sauté until the onion is translucent. Add kale stems and stir for 1 minute.
Add eggs, break the yolks, and let the egg set about half way then scramble briefly. Add rice and toss briefly, breaking up big lumps with the back of your spatula.
Add all sauce ingredients and toss, breaking up lumps, until the rice is evenly coated in the sauce and the grains are all separated. Add more black soy sauce if you want a darker colour.
Add kale leaves and white pepper and toss just to wilt the kale leaves.
Serve immediately with a lime wedge and topped with chopped cilantro.
