  • 300 g chicken breasts (boneless, skin off) (can use thighs or tenders)

  • ½ tbsp soy sauce

  • 1½ tbsp cornflour

  • ¾ C jasmine rice

  • ¼ C cornflour

  • 2 tbsp plain flour

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • ¼ C water fridge cold (see Chef’s tip)

  • 200 g coleslaw mix (see Chef’s tip)

  • ¾ C The Good Oil Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil 1L

  • 1½ spring onions finely sliced

Honey sauce
  • ¼ C runny honey

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 clove of garlic crushed

  • 1½ cm fresh ginger grated

  • ½ tbsp cornflour

  • 1 tbsp water

  • Cut the chicken into small bite sized pieces. Drizzle with the soy and dust with cornflour.
  • Rinse the rice and cook according to packet instructions.
  • To make the sauce gently combine the honey, soy, garlic and ginger in a pot over a gentle heat, stir to combine and allow to boil. Mix the cornflour to a paste with the water and add to the sauce, stir until the sauce thickens.
  • Tip the slaw into a salad bowl and dress with the package dressing.
  • Combine the cornflour, plain flour and baking soda in a bowl. Pour in the cold water and gently mix to combine.
  • Heat the oil in a large pot over a medium-high heat. Once hot, dip the chicken into the batter and then cook in batches until it is golden, crisp and cooked through. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
  • Pour the honey sauce over the cooked chicken and turn to coat.
  • Serve the honey chicken with rice and slaw, sprinkle with spring onions.

Chef’s Tip: Add ice cubes to tap water to ensure it is cold as the colder the better.

We have suggested using a packaged slaw mix for ease and ingredient efficiency. If you want to make your own slaw we suggest using 1/4 cabbage, shredded, 1/2 red onion, diced, 1 grated carrot, chopped parsley and a creamy slaw dressing or mayonnaise.
