As one of my treats for my 40th, my sister in law's father Norman, cooked a fabulous Indonesian Banquet, he included many of my favourite delicious dishes, but a new one he added and a really simple one was Fried Five Spice Chicken.
Ridiculously easy, but so very tasty and quite special.
2 Chicken breasts, sliced in to thin strips
Flour to coat
Chinese 5 Spice mix
Salt & Pepper
Oil to shallow fry
Mix about 2 tbsp flour with approx 2 tsp Chinese 5 spice and add a hefty grind of pepper and salt and mix together thoroughly.
Heat oil in a pan, I have a deep sided wok and filled it to a depth of an inch, this is enough to cover the little strips of chicken.
Dredge the chicken in the flour mix and add about 6 pieces to the hot oil and fry until crispy, should only take a couple of minutes, turning them once, remove onto a piece of kitchen roll to drain and repeat.
I served this on a noodle and vegetable stirfry, very very scrummy.
Welcome to my cooking diary. I am a fairly good cook willing to try most things, I hope to continue to expand my repertoire and cook healthy (ish) dishes. I use this blog as a aide memoire so I don't forget what I have cooked!
