If you're anything like me you're time poor when it comes to preparing meals, when I get the chance I like to find new recipes that are tasty and not too time consuming!
Let's face it coming up with new meal ideas is a bit of a chore and we tend to stick to the same favourites because it's quick and we know everyone will eat it! So i'm guessing that's why so many people asked for the recipe of the Honey Chilli Chicken we posted last night!
This is a nice easy meal that packs a load of flavour and I'm sure it will become a favourite!
The quantities listed serve 4 but if you have hungry teenagers in the house I would increase the quantities and even if there's leftovers it can be lunches for the next day!
See the recipe below.
Honey Chilli Chicken
8 chicken thigh fillets
1/4 cup honey
1 tbls sriracha sauce or chilli sauce
Zest and juice from 1/2 a lime
1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
salt and pepper to season
Pre heat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Put thigh fillets in a large bowl, mix honey, chilli sauce, lime zest and juice together and pour over chicken. Add chopped coriander and mix through making sure all the chicken in coated. Put on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 25 minutes or until coating is caramalised and chicken is cooked through. Turn frequently during cooking time.
1 5cm piece fresh ginger
2 cloves fresh garlic
2 bunches pak choy
1 bunch asparagus
1/4 cup oyster sauce
sesame seeds to serve
Peel ginger and slice into matchsticks, thinly slice garlic cloves, cut pak choy lengthways into wedges and cut woody ends from the asparagus. Add a little oil to the wok and stirfry ginger and garlic for one minute, add pak choy and asparagus stir fry for a couple of minutes then add oyster sauce and gently stir through greens, cook for another minute or two making sure the greens are nicely coated in the oyster sauce. Serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
You can make your own slaw if you like but I took the quick easy option and used the Coles Asian Slaw mix.
Serve on a big platter and watch it be devoured! Let us know if you enjoy it as much as we did!
