NUTTY CHICKEN STRIPS

We know that during lockdown, our eating habits may not be great. If you fancy a quick and easy snack you may be reaching for crisp packets or biscuits. Why not try making nut chicken strips? Not only are they tasty, but they are really easy to bake and do not require lots of ingredients. They look great, so why not cook for your family (in your household) and serve as a starter.  Or if you are trying to stay away from snacking, why not add some rice and your favourite vegetables to make it into a different and tasty meal.

 INGREDIENTS

  • 2tbsp chunky peanut butter
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1 tsp Madras curry powder
  • Few shakes of soy sauce
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2  chicken breast fillets (approx 300g) cut into thick strips
  • About 10cm cucumber, cut into fingers
  • Dipping sauce of choice (would recommend sweet chilli sauce)

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 12-15 minutes

METHOD


1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/ 180C fan/ gas mark 4 and line a baking tray with non-stick paper.

2. In a bowl mix the peanut butter, grated garlic, madras curry powder, lime juice and the few shakes of soy sauce. Some types of peanut butter can be thicker than others, so if deemed necessary, add a dash of boiling water to dilute.

3. Add the chicken strips to the bowl and mix well until the strips are fully coated. Place on the baking sheet, making sure they are well spaced out and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until cooked.

4. To serve, cut around 10cm of cucumber into strips and add a dipping sauce of your choice.
