  • 1 ripe tomato, finely sliced (optional)
  • Small handful of spring onions cut into 3 cm lengths (optional)

  1. In a bowl combine marinade ingredients. Mix chicken through, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes but preferably for a few hours.
  2. Heat Latasha’s Kitchen Chilli Oil in a wok over low heat. Add lemongrass, garlic, chilli and shallots then stir-fry for about 5 minutes or until aromatic.
  3. Add the marinated chicken and caramelise chicken all over on medium to high heat.
  4. Next add coconut juice, zucchini, bring to a quick boil and then simmer on medium until all the juice evaporates.
  5. Add Latasha’s Kitchen Caramelised Apple Cider Vinegar to the chicken and stir to mix well. Chicken should be cooked fairly quickly with some dressing remaining.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and garnish with chillies, tomatoes, spring onions and coriander leaves.
  7. Serve with steamed rice and a side dish of stir-fried garlic with broccolini, snow peas and cashew nuts for a complete healthy meal.
