Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into chips

Add the chips to a baking tray with half [all] of the five-spice mix, a generous drizzle of vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp [1 tsp] sugar and lots of salt and pepper

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until golden and crisp

2

While the chips are cooking, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a very large drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Add the diced chicken thighs to a bowl with the cornflour and give it a good mix up until all the chicken is coated

3

Once the pan is very hot, add the coated chicken along with half of the soy sauce (save the rest for later!) and cook for 5-6 min on each side until golden and crispy and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) – this is your crispy chicken

Once crispy, transfer to a plate and set aside and reserve the pan

4

Cut the red pepper[s] in half (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and chop into small cubes

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

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

Finely slice the red chilli[es] into rounds

Trim, then finely slice the spring onion[s]

5

Return the reserved pan to a medium-high heat with any remaining oil

Add the chopped red pepperginger and half of the chopped garlic (save the rest for later!) and cook for 3-4 min or until fragrant

Meanwhile, add the remaining soy sauce to a bowl with the honey, chilli jam and Chinese rice wine – this is your sticky chilli sauce

6

Add the sticky chilli sauce to the pan and cook for 3 min or until the sauce begins to thicken and the pepper has softened

While the sauce thickens, chop the coriander finely, including the stalks

Once thickened, add the crispy chicken to the pan and cook for 1 min further until the chicken is coated in the sauce – this is your sticky chilli chicken

7

Once the chips are cooked, add the remaining chopped garlicchopped spring onion and chilli rounds (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the tray and give everything a good mix up – these are your salt & pepper chips
