Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
TURN IT INTO A STIR-FRY

Stir together the dip ingredients as above. Slice the chicken, toss with 2 tsp oil and the five spice, then stir-fry for 3 mins. Add broccoli, cut into short lengths, then fry for 3 mins more. Add a splash of water, then once it’s boiled off and the broccoli is tender, tip in the sesame seeds, a pinch dried chilli, fry 1 min, then add the dip and toss well. Serve with noodles or rice.
