Tana Ramsay's sticky starter with peanut coated chicken and crunchy vegetables is a children's favourite


1. 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.


Tips and suggestions

Tana poaches her chicken breasts in simmering water or chicken stock for about 20 minutes, until cooked through.

I thought my kids would enjoy this recipe as they have had similar before. I found it was really gloopy and very, very sickening. Kids did not like it either even though I followed recipe precisely.

Didn't find it too bad, enjoyed it, family enjoyed it and so did many of my friends. Although I didn't measure things out as said. I used:

Half a 700g tub of peanut butter
Half of sweet chilli dipping sauce
3 Tbsp of sesame oil
Sesame seeds.

4 spring onions cut up
Half a cucumber cut up
3 Chicken breasts
Sesame seeds on top

Lined the bowls with lettuce.

Also I layered them in a bowl rather than a plate as it was easier.

Was a bit sickly, way too much peanut butter. Also I think some of the ingredients are a bit mixed up... for example the Sesame oil should be 1 tsp and the Vegetable should be 2 tbsp; and I should think the sesame seeds should be toasted rather than the oil?

followed this recipe to the letter and found it really really sickening and with an unpleasant oily after taste. The calorie count is huge as well. Even the kids didnt like it.
