1 Marinate chicken
In a bowl, whisk half of the sugar with all of the soysauce. Turn the chicken in the sauce and set aside to marinate.
2 Boil rice
Rinse the jasmine rice. Add the rice, a pinch of salt and the measuredwater to a pan with a lid and bring to a boil over a high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 min or until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Once cooked, remove the pan from heat and keep covered until serving.
Tip!The trick to perfect rice is to rinse it thoroughly first, thereby removing as much starch as possible. Rinse it once, twice or even thrice, until the water runs clear..
3 Prep vegetables
Meanwhile, peel and finely grate the ginger (tip: use a spoon to peel the ginger) and garlic. Trim and very finely chop the spring onion, redchilli and coriander (stalks included) - alternatively, use a food processor. Trim and roughly chop the greenbeans.
4 Fry chicken
Heat a large pan over a medium- high heat with a drizzle of vegetableoil. Once hot, add the chickenbreast (discard the marinade), cover with a lid and fry for 7-10 min until cooked through. Flip occasionally. Season with salt.
5 Make broth
Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a plate to rest. Return the pan to a medium heat (wipe it clean with kitchen paper) with another drizzle of oil. Add the greenbeans, star anise, garlic, chilli(spicy!), ginger and spring onion and fry for 3-4 min. Add the remaining brown sugar, measuredwater and lime leaves. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3-4 min.
Add any juices from the rested chicken to the pan. Remove the broth from the heat, add the fish sauce and chopped coriander and juice the lime directly into it. Divide the rice among shallow bowls. Ladle the broth into the bowls and top with the sliced chicken. Garnish with the coconutflakes.
