FOR THE RICE
In a heavy-based, medium saucepan, combine water and rice. Cover and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer gently for 35-45 mins, or until water is absorbed and rice just tender.
Remove saucepan from heat and stand for a few mins, then fluff rice with a fork.
FOR THE STIR-FRY
Place a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add oil and when hot after 1 min, add onion and cook for 1 min. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 1 min, until fragrant.
Add chicken and cook for 2 mins, stirring constantly, or until just golden brown.
Add mushrooms and cook for 1-2 mins, tossing well, then add pak choy, separating the leaves, and cook for 1 min, or until just wilted.
Add soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce and oyster sauce and toss to coat ingredients well. Toss in bean shoots.
Serve rice on a plate or in bowls and top with stir-fry. Garnish with spring onions and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
