Time for another recipe night masterpiece.
Jamie’s (Yes – him again) Sticky Kickin Chicken.
I can’t get enough of the 15 Minute Meals cook book. There are so many things in there that I want to eat that you’ll probably find I come back to it a LOT. The truth is there’s pretty much something on every page I want and to be honest, they are all ludicrously easy and damn fast to make.
With friends coming over for a bit of school night supper I wanted to make something a little different but meant I could spend more time nursing a large Malbec than assembling culinary genius. So Kickin Chicken it was.
The recipe calls for chicken thighs rather than breast and that’s a great. They just taste better. And once you’ve coated them in five spice, fried them and drowned them in sweet chilli sauce and sesame seeds… well they’re just good. Finger licking good you could say.
You serve the chicken with a noodle, baby gem and radish salad with some of the noodles crunchy for texture and add in lots of chopped mint and coriander. Jamie, in his wisdom, suggests that you add watermelon to the salad too but as I categorically disagree with watermelon I swapped in some sweet apple instead. You finish off the salad with a soy, ginger and chilli dressing and you’re done. Dinner is ready.
Super quick. Relatively healthy. Delicious.
