Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15-20 min or until it's tender with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain, return it to the pot and keep covered until serving

2 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Slice 2 [4] medium-sized slices of lemon 

Place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s] and slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with 2 [4] thinner pieces

Add the chicken to a tray with 1 tsp [2 tsp] vegetable oil and a pinch of salt

Top each piece with a lemon slice and put the tray in the oven for 12-14 min or until cooked through (no pink meat!)

3 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Whilst the chicken is cooking, boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

4 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Dissolve the cornflour in 100ml [180ml] boiled water

Add the soy sauce and honey and whisk until smooth

Squeeze in the juice of the remaining lemon[s] – this is your lemon stock 

5 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium heat

When the pan is hot, add the chopped garlic and ginger with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until softened

Once softened, add the lemon stock and cook for 5-6 min or until thick and glossy

Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir through the toasted sesame oil - this is your lemon sauce

6 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Meanwhile, add the shredded kale to a large baking tray with a pinch of salt and 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] vegetable oil

Massage the kale with clean hands so that the kale is evenly covered in oil

Put the tray in the oven for 5-10 min or until it's crispy, giving it a good mix up half way through – this is your crispy kale

7 2412 - Joe's Lemon & Ginger Chicken With Crispy Kale

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s]

Finely slice the cooked chicken (you can add the lemon slices to your sauce!)
