Another day done!
As much as we'd love to treat ourselves to a scrumptious takeaway, our bank account says otherwise nowadays. We're trying to save as much as we can at the moment, which means that we can't call up our local takeaway as much as we'd like.
However, that doesn't mean that we have to deprive ourselves of a stunning Tuesday evening meal!
If you fancy making a 'fakeaway' yourself tonight, then how about whipping up this gorgeous recipe for crispy sesame chicken? It won't take long to make, and you will feel extra proud of yourself for saving a few quid in the process.
Here's all the details below:
3 boneless chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic
1/2tsp fresh ginger
2tbsp soy sauce
2tbsp maple syrup/honey
1tbsp sesame oil
1 beaten egg
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1tsp sesame seeds
1tbsp rice vinegar
Dice your chicken into small, bite-size pieces and place into a bowl.
Scatter your 2 teaspoons of cornstarch over them and toss to fully coat them.
Combine your flour and breadcrumbs in a large bowl.
Next, dip your coated chicken into beaten egg, before dipping them into the breadcrumbs-flour bowl. Set your chicken pieces aside.
Heat your sesame oil in a pan over medium heat and toss in your chicken, cooking until crispy and cooked through before removing from the pan.
In the same pan, fry up your chopped garlic clove and toss in your ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes and maple syrup and cook until it reduces to a thick, sticky sauce.
Add your chicken into your frying pan and coat it with the sauce.
Serve up with fluffy white rice, a scattering a sesame seeds and a few chopped scallions for extra zing!
