Hoisin Chicken

This is one of the loveliest dinners I’ve had in ages, so quick and easy. Hoisin is always a winner in our house. So rich and full of flavour. The spring onions and cashews add a nice crunch. It’s great served with some jasmine or coconut rice and prawn crackers.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.


4 chicken breasts

5 spring onions – chopped

3 tablespoons hoisin sauce

Handful of cashews

Juice of half a lime

1 teaspoon honey

Salt and cracked black pepper to season

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1 teaspoon ground ginger

2 cloves garlic – minced


Cut your chicken into cubes.

Mix up your hoisin sauce, honey, ground ginger and lime juice in a large mixing bowl and add the chicken pieces. Set aside.

Heat a tablespoon of sesame oil in a pan over a fairly high heat. Add the spring onions, cashews and garlic. Stir for a minute or 2 then set aside.

Now add another tablespoon of sesame oil to the hot pan and pan fry your chicken cubes until they are cooked through. You need the heat fairly high to make sure your chicken browns nicely. Add your spring onions and cashews back in and season to your taste.

Serve right away with rice of choice.
