You will need:

5 tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce

2 tsp five spice

2 tsp ground coriander

2 garlic cloves, crushed

Pinch dried chilli flakes

300g chicken breasts, skinless, cut into strips

160g ripe tomatoes, chopped

1 small red pepper, diced

½ red onion, finely chopped

1 small fresh red chilli, finely chopped

Freshly ground black pepper

Small bunch fresh coriander, chopped

80g mangetout

1 head pak choi

2 spring onions, cut into strips

 

Method:

  • Mix 4 tbsp of the soy sauce with the five spice, ground coriander, garlic and chilli flakes in a bowl, stir in the chicken so it’s well coated, then pop in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 mins.

 

  • Thread the chicken onto wooden skewers and place in a foil-lined grill pan or on a barbecue. Brush with the remaining marinade, then grill for 10-12 mins, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

 

  • Meanwhile, mix the tomatoes, red pepper, fresh chilli, ground black pepper and coriander to make a salsa, and steam the mangetout and pak choi until just tender.

 

  • Serve the kebabs, vegetables and salsa drizzled with the remaining soy sauce, topped with the spring onions.
