About this recipe: Use the tender meat left from last night's roast chicken for these Asian-flavoured pancakes with spring onions, five-spice powder and soy sauce. It's a fun family meal as each diner custom-makes his own pancake.

  1. Put 1 tbsp olive oil in a small frying pan with 4 tbsp soy sauce and 4 tbsp dry sherry. Add 1/2 tsp five-spice powder, 2 crushed garlic cloves and 1 tbsp sugar. Gently heat until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil and let the mixture bubble for a minute. Cut about 300g cooked chicken into strips and add to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is hot and sticky. Shred 1 bunch of spring onions and slice 1 cucumber, then arrange on a plate with 1/2 Chinese cabbage, shredded. Heat 2 packs of Chinese pancakes according to the pack instructions. Serve the chicken with the spring onions, cucumber, Chinese leaves and pancakes. Each person should place a little chicken and lots of vegetables in each pancake, and then roll it up.
