Oh no… what’s for dinner tonight?
I’m all for shortcuts, check out this easy dinner… it’s a take on a duck pancake that I love at Yum Cha and easy to do.
4 chicken breasts (one breast per person)
1 cup cornflour
1 cup bread crumbs
butter for frying
1 lebanese cucumber julienned (cut into short, thin strips)
3 shallots sliced lengthways very finely
1 pkt mountain bread corn wraps
I jar hoisin sauce (I use Lee Kum Kee brand – this is pretty important, is fab straight out of the jar)
Slice the chicken in half so you get 2 thin chicken fillets for each breast (you’ll have 8 altogether). Coat the chicken in cornflour, then dip in egg mixture, then finish in bread crumbs.
Heat butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through. If I am making a lot of these I put the finished ones on a tray in the oven on low to keep warm while I cook the rest. Tip: You could use pre crumbed schnitzel if you are in a rush and just cook to the packet directions (even easier).
Slice the crumbed chicken and arrange on a platter with the shallots and cucumber. (I forgot to take a pic with the cucumbers strips in the rollups, sometimes we have these with and sometimes without.)
Cut the mountain bread into 3 long strips per square and heat in the microwave for 40 secs.
Spoon half the jar of the hoisin sauce into a cup or small bowl.
Then start rolling up your chicken and enjoy. Always a winner at our house.
Here’s the hoisin sauce I used, I received no payment for this, just passing on what I think tastes yum after trying many varieties.
What’s for dinner tonight at your house?
