Chicken Satay With Pak Choi

In spite of beginning with a Bank Holiday, this is going to be a particularly busy week for one Hungry Boy. With the main criteria for the week’s recipes being ‘ease’, how interesting that all recipes should end up being Nigel Slater ones. 

The ease of this recipe is that most of the ingredients just go in the food processor, so there is zero prep. Wizz hot chillies (we used up a big one that was lurking in the fridge too) with peanuts, soy sauce, ginger and oil, then smear the paste over two chicken breasts.

Bake these in the oven for thirty minutes, then when they’re almost done quickly stir-fry the Pak choi in a little soy sauce.

The paste makes a delicious crust with a subtle heat that builds and clears your sinuses for the evening.
