Honey Chicken

Honey chicken, doesn’t actually have any honey in it but has golden syrup in instead. I call it honey chicken because my kids like honey and will assume it’s tasty. If you find this morally objectionable then feel free to call it “golden syrup chicken” instead! This should only take about 12 minutes, depending on how long your rice takes to cook.

So here’s what you’ll need:

Toasted sesame oil (just a splash)
Sunflower oil ( an even smaller splash to stop the sesame oil from burning)
A breast of chicken (this seems fine for my 3 kids)
Sweet corn
Broccoli
Golden syrup
Rice (enough for however many kids you have!)

So, firstly, put your rice on to boil. Then warm the oil and add the chicken which should be diced into small squares. When the chicken has browned then add the sweetcorn and the broccoli until they are soft. When they’re all cooked, squeeze some golden syrup over the food and stir. I don’t add much but do it to taste. When the rice has cooked then add the chicken to the rice and stir.

“Is that it?”‘ I hear you cry! Yes it freaking well is, ha!

Bang Bang Pig (a recipe, before you ask)

Bang bang Pig/Chicken

One pork medalian per child/two chicken mini fillets per child
5 or 6 breadsticks or three handfulls of cornflakes
One egg yolk
Splash of sunflower oil

This can be done with a tomato sauce and pasta or with chips/mash and veg. It’s quite fun to do with the kids if they enjoy getting involved. I try to keep them out of it if possible as I’m a control freak and have to shudder through their participation with a fixed grin and a strong gin.

Firstly crush your breadsticks or cornflakes until they’re the consistency of breadcrumbs. Lay out your pork medalians or chicken breasts on a flat surface and bash with the end of a rolling pin until flat, (kids love that bit). Once flat brush over egg yolk on both sides and sprinkle the breadcrumbs on both sides. Then just put a little splash of oil on a per-heated griddle and fry on about 4 mins each side until cooked through and brownish on the outside. Easy von peasy.
