Ingredients

6 Boneless Chicken Thighs

3tsp Hoi Sin Sauce

2tsp of honey/agave honey

2tsp Rice Wine Vinegar

1tsp Sesame Oil

2 Chunks Ginger

2 Garlic Clove

Sesame Seeds and Spring Onion to garnish

 

Method

Place your chicken thighs in a slow cooker with the chopped up ginger and garlic. In a bowl mix together the hoisin, rice wine vinegar, honey, sesame oil and pour over the chicken. Put this on low for 6 hours or high for 3-4 hours. When this is done use 2 forks to shred it all up! Transfer this to a serving dish and garnish with sesame seeds and spring onions. This is the BEST served with sticky white rice and prawn crackers.

#2 Fake Nandos

Ingredients

1 Free Range Medium Size Chicken

Dried Chilli Flakes

1 Bottle of Peri Peri Marinade

Juice of 1 Lime

2 Garlic Cloves

1 Fresh Red Chilli to garnish

 

Method

Place the chicken in an enamel dish with one cup of water at the bottom. Pour over the peri-peri marinade, (make sure it gets right in there) squeeze over the juice of the lime and put this inside the chicken carcass along with the 2 garlic cloves for extra flavor. Pour over 4tsp of chili flakes making sure they cover the chicken then wrap in tin foil. Heat this for an hour in the oven at 180 degrees, the water will steam through the chicken along with the peri-peri marinade. Uncover the chicken and continue to roast for the last half hour to make the skin crispy! Cut up the chicken and shred into the same dish with all those juices. Garnish with fresh red chili and you’re done!…. Obviously best served with homemade peri-peri fries!

(Serves 4)
