Tana Ramsay's sticky starter with peanut coated chicken and crunchy vegetables is a children's favourite
Method1. Spoon the peanut butter into a heatproof bowl, add 2 tablespoons water, the chilli sauce and both oils and stir through. Sit the bowl over a pan of boiling water, as it warms it will soften to a pouring consistency.
2. Shred the chicken breasts and set aside.
3. Put all the vegetables in a bowl and stir through the rice vinegar. Arrange on a serving plate, put the shredded chicken on top and spoon over the peanut sauce generously. Finish by sprinkling over the sesame seeds.
- 250 g smooth or crunchy peanut butter
