Check out the recipe for a mouth-watering garlic and pepper chicken dish, using Olivado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil. Read the full recipe here:


1 Waitoa free range chicken breast, sliced into thin bite-size pieces (3/4 cup)
1/4 cup garlic cloves, smashed
3/4 teaspoon palm sugar (or white sugar)
3/4 teaspoon white pepper powder or black pepper powder (or mix them)
1 3/4 teaspoons fish sauce
1-2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Avocado Oil (enough to coat bottom of pan)
2-3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon coriander leaves (for garnish)


1. Rinse and cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces (see picture).
Smash the garlic lightly with the side of a knife. Remove the skin if not using thin-skinned Thai garlic.

2. Heat the avocado oil in a pan until very hot. Add the garlic and keep stirring so it doesn’t burn.
When lightly browned, add the chicken. Cook until done (not raw). If it gets dry and sticky, add some water to the pan about 1-2 tablespoons at a time.

3. Add the palm sugar, fish sauce and pepper. You may need to add a bit more water here so that it mixes well.
Mix well and serve on rice. Garnish with coriander.

Top tip
If making a vegetarian version - pre-fry the tofu first until browned, remove, then start with step 2. Substitute the fish sauce for white soy sauce.
