Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Place a wide-based pan (ideally non-stick and with a matching lid) over a medium-high heat with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) vegetable oil

When hot, add the chicken and colour on each side for 3 min or until golden

Season each side generously with salt 

2 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Once golden, add a splash of water (approx. 2-3 tbsp) and cover immediately with a lid (stand back as it will spit!)

Tip: The trapped water creates steam for even cooking

Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for a further 7-10 min or until the chicken is cooked through, lowering the heat if necessary

3 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Meanwhile, boil a kettle for step 5

Peel and cut the carrots into bite-size pieces, discarding the root ends

Trim the green beans and cut them in half widthways

Soak the coconut cream sachet(s) in a bowl of very hot water (this softens it)

4 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a clean chopping board and allow to rest for 5 min

Add the carrot to the same pan with a large pinch of salt

Cook over a medium-high heat for 3 min or until coloured and caramelised

5 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Meanwhile, add the noodles to a pot of salted boiling water (enough to cover them) on a high heat

Boil for 5-7 min or until cooked through but with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and briefly rinse them under cold, running water until cooled slightly, then return them to the pot off the heat

6 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Meanwhile, add the green beans to the caramelised carrots and cover again with a lid

Cook for 5 min over a medium-low heat or until both vegetables are tender 

Meanwhile, peel and chop (or grate) the garlic finely

7 Coconut Tamarind Chicken

Combine the tamarind paste, coconut cream, honey, soy sauce and garlic with 50ml (100ml) boiled water

Mix well - this is your tamarind sauce 

Shred the chicken with two forks, 'pulling' at the chicken to tear it 

Chop the spring onions finely, discarding the root ends
