Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper. Mix the breadcrumbs, sesame seeds, five-spice and a little seasoning on a plate. Pat dry the chicken, dip into the egg, then roll in the breadcrumb mix. Arrange on the baking tray, then bake for 25-30 mins until crisp and cooked through.

  2. When the chicken is almost ready, boil the broccoli in salted water for a few mins until just tender. Mix the soy sauce with the citrus juices and sugar to make a dipping sauce. Serve the crispy chicken with the broccoli and little dishes of the sauce for dipping, plus lime wedges for squeezing over.

I had 12 hours to make something lovely for my parents and this did the job. Took ten minutes whacking the chicken in various bits and it turned out awesome in the oven. Reckon you could do this with cajun or creole spice instead of Chinese five spice and you could pretend you'd given the chicken an exotic twist and no one would know you'd only changed up a handful of herbs and stuff. *wink* You heard it here first.

So easy and so tasty! I put a bit more five spice on the chicken and it worked really well. After 25 minutes the chicken was perfectly cooked on the inside and crispy on the outside. I realised I'd run out of soy sauce half way through cooking this, so I served it with sweet chilli sauce - it was perfectly good, but I suspect the soy sauce mix would work just that bit better. I wouldn't hesitate to make it again and serve it with either sauce, though.

I found this had WAY too much lemon and lime in the dip

I must have made this 5-7 times by now and it is a huge winner every time. It is so healthy, crunchy, tasty and super easy to make. My one friend is addicted to it and we keep making it and using the chicken in different recipes. It actually works well stuffed in a roll with cheese, parma ham and lettuce as a healthy burger alternative. I have sliced it and added it to noodles, but mostly I just serve it with dipping sauces and egg fried rice. Making it again tomorrow, it has been two weeks since we had it last :)

Can anyone tell me if this recipe needs WHITE or TOASTED sesame seeds?! There is another recipe I have seen that I also want to try that also requiries breadcrumbs & sesame seeds - I assume not toasted as it doesn't say so, but that could be an error on the webpage! - so I can't tell with that recipe either! I'd like to try this recipe with the 'official' ingredients (if I have them in the kitchen already) at least once, before I try to change it! Thanks!

i just made the chicken and did it with some noodles tossed with soy sauce and toasted seasame oil. I really enjoyed it and will be making it again, had the leftovers in a bread roll the next day and it was just as tasty

I was looking for a relatively healthy crispy chicken recipe and this did the trick really well. The first time I made it though I had all the ingredients in the house except the Chinese five spice and so substituted it with Schwarz Cajun seasoning which was very tasty too! Using less caster sugar is more to my taste too...

Delivers lots of flavor for so little preparation. A true winner !

Really enjoyed this dish. The flavours in the soy dip were lovely. I added a bit more sugar to it by mistake but glad I did as it calmed the zesty lime.
Used italian breadcrumbs too as it was all I had but added a nice aromatic taste! Will definitely make this again!
