Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp sriracha chilli sauce (see tip below)
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 240g pack Tenderstem broccoli
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds , toasted

Method

  • STEP 1

    Slice each chicken breast lengthways into 2 thin pieces. Rub with the oil and season on both sides. Heat a grill pan and cook the pieces for 2-3 mins each side.

  • STEP 2

    While the chicken is cooking, mix the chilli sauce, ginger, honey and vinegar with a little seasoning in a small bowl. Brush over the chicken as it cooks – wait until it is grilled on one side first before brushing, or it will burn.

  • STEP 3

    Blanch the broccoli, divide between the plates and pour over the remaining sauce. Top with the chicken and sesame seeds.
