Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Bang Bang Chicken Salad

Boil a kettle

Add the basmati rice and 250ml [500ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked, then remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

2 Nutty Bang Bang Chicken & Rice Salad

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken breast[s] with a generous pinch of both salt and pepper and cook for 3 min on each side, or until golden

3 Bang Bang Chicken Salad

Shred the little gem[s] finely

Top, tail, peel, then grate the carrot[s]

Trim, then slice the spring onions finely

Add the shredded little gem, grated carrot and sliced spring onion to a large mixing bowl

4 Nutty Bang Bang Chicken & Rice Salad

Once browned, reduce the heat to medium-low and sprinkle the five-spice over the chicken

Turn the chicken breast[s] several times until evenly coated in the spice

Cook for 1 min further, then add a splash of water and cook, covered, for 8-12 min or until the chicken is cooked through

5 Bang Bang Chicken Salad

While the chicken is cooking, cut the cucumber into discs

Stack a few cucumber discs at a time and cut each stack into matchsticks

Cut half of the red chilli[es] into rounds (save the rest for later)

Add the cucumber matchsticks and chilli rounds (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the bowl with the little gem, carrot and spring onion – this is your crunchy salad

6 Bang Bang Chicken Salad

Cut the remaining chilli in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar and chopped chilli (remember to go easy if you don’t like heat!) in a small bowl

Add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] boiled water with 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar and mix to combine – this is your peanut dressing

7 Bang Bang Chicken Salad

Transfer the cooked chicken to a chopping board and shred it using two forks – this is called 'pulling'

Once shredded, season the chicken with a pinch of salt – this is your bang bang chicken

Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and add it to the crunchy salad

Dress the crunchy salad with the peanut dressing and a drizzle of olive oil and season with a generous pinch of salt
