Home from work and I didn’t feel like cooking, I didn’t have much inspiration – so I turned to Donna Hay and as usual she saved the day.
Tonight we are having Sticky Chilli Chicken – there is only 2 of us tonight which makes it easier.  I have modified it slightly due to lack of ingredients and simplicity.
Serves 2
  • 3 long red chillies, deseeded and finely sliced (I have used 1/4 teaspoon dried chilli)
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, white part only, finely sliced (I omitted this as I didn’t have any)
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1/3 cup (80mls) white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
  • 2 x 200g chicken breast fillets, timmed and halved lengthways ( I chopped mine into bite size pieces)
  • 300g snake or green beans, finely chopped (I used broccoli)
  • steamed rice, mint, basil and coriander leaves and lime to serve (I only had the coriander and lime)

Place the chilli, ginger, lemongrass, fish sauce, vinegar and sugar in a deep frying pan over  high heat and cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture is reduced and thickened slightly.

Add the chicken and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the chicken, add the beans and continue to cook for a further 3-4 minutes. or until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve the chicken and beans with steamed rice, mint, basil and coriander leaves and lime wedges.

Too easy!!!!
