Enjoy Easy delicious Chinese chicken with fried rice and sliced tomato salad

My Chinese friend demonstrated this recipe for a group of friends few years ago. She used Leeks instead of spring onions. Whenever we meet unexpectedly on the street market of Leuven, she just invites me for a Chinese lunch. She is so warm and welcoming and so quick making instant lunches. It brings back memories of Guests dropping in unannounced in India during lunch time. Only this time I am the Guest. Lucky me!!
