Fry until cooked through and golden.</li> <li>Whilst the chicken is cooking, add the tinned tomatoes to a small saucepan with 1/3 of the tin of water as well. Bring the tomatoes to the boil and cook until smooth.</li> <li>Add the boiled tomatoes to the wok with the chicken and cook them together for a few minutes.</li> <li>Finally, add the onions and the peppers and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.</li> <li>Remove from the heat and serve with rice or noodles.</li> </ol>

Handy Hint

<p>Aim for the tomatoes sauce to be lump free - you can blend it. Add less or more chilli depending on how much spice you like.</p>
