Shaun Rankin’s exotic dish will be a real winner with kids and adults alike. The Asian ingredients are not too overpowering and will subtly introduce children’s palates to new flavours.
Start by preparing the chicken breasts, slice into strips and add to a mixing bowl – let older kids do this step using a blunt-ish knife.
Put the rest of the ingredients – except the salad and pak choi – into the bowl.
Let the kids mix in the ingredients and coat the chicken. Leave to marinate for an hour or longer if possible.
After the chicken has marinated, put a wok or frying pan over a high heat and gradually add the marinated chicken strips – do not stir as the chicken needs to be left to caramelise on the outside.
Once golden, flip the strips over and cook on the other side – making sure they are cooked through with no pink showing.
Remove the base from the pak choi and use your hands to separate the leaves and add to the chicken. Stir until the pak choi wilts and is dressed in the pan juices.
Serve the chicken and pak choi onto plates along with the pan juices, garnish with herby green salad leaves and serve immediately.
