Salt and pepper chicken bites

    20 min

    This recipe is similar to how the Chinese takeaways make theirs, if you have tried them then you will know what I mean. They are addictive so maybe wise to make more than what you were planning on making. Depending on how much crushed chillies you use they can have a firey kick, but not one person who has tried these said they didn't like them. Their definitely a favourite. Try and see for yourself.

    Serves: 1 

    • 1 chicken breast fillet, chopped into small chunks
    • 1 teaspoon crumbled chicken stock cube
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 150g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon cornflour
    • 75-100ml water
    • oil for deep frying
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon dried crushed chilli flakes

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a mixing bowl combine the chicken with the salt, pepper and crumbled chicken stock cube and mix well.
    2. In another mixing bowl add flour and cornflour. Mix together and add water, a bit at a time until you have a batter texture that you're happy with (not too thick, not too runny). Add the chicken to the batter and mix well.
    3. Preheat a deep fryer or chip pan. Drop a bit of batter to make sure oil is hot enough. It should rise immediately if its at the correct temperature. Now add the chicken bits 5 at a time. Cook till brown and crispy looking, drain and sit aside on a plate.
    4. In a pan heat up the olive oil over a medium heat and when hot add garlic and fry for 1 minute. Next add spring onions and do same. Then add crushed chilli flakes and stir for 1 minute. Add cooked chicken and mix well. Tip on to a plate and enjoy.


    This makes about 10 chicken bites but if you want to make more then just add all the same ingredients to every extra chicken breast fillet you add.
