1. Mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp of the stock, then stir in the rest of the stock, the marmalade, lemon zest and juice and the mustard.

2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a very hot wok or wide pan, then add the leeks. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until starting to char and wilt, then add the cavolo nero and turn it in the pan for 2 minutes. Tip onto a plate once the leaves start to wilt.

3. Add 1 tsp oil to the pan followed by the chicken and ginger. Season, then fry for 3 minutes or until turning golden. Pour in the mustard mix and simmer for 5-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat and the sauce is a little syrupy. Fold in the leeks and greens then serve with basmati rice.
