Cooking Time (Includes Preparation Time): 25 Minutes

Feeds: 4 People


  • 2 Garlic Cloves

  • 8 Skinless, Boneless Chicken Thighs

  • 400g of Cornflour

  • 3 Eggs

  • Vegetable Oil (For Frying)

  • 2.5 Tablespoons of Marmite

  • 6 Tablespoons of Rice Wine Vinegar

  • 5 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce

  • 3.5 Tablespoons of Honey

  • 400g of Basmati Rice

  • Spring Onions (Chopped, for garnish)


  1. Cut your chicken into mouth size chunks.

  2. Get 2 bowls out. Crack your eggs into one of them; whisk them up with some salt and pepper. Add your cornflour to the other bowl (save 1.5 teaspoons for later).

  3. Dip your chicken in the flour, then the egg, then the flour, so it is evenly coated.

  4. Get a wok on the heat with a large splash of vegetable oil. Fry your chicken in batches, for 4-5 minutes per batch. You want the chicken to begin to brown and puff up. At this point, remove it from the wok and set aside.

  5. Get your rice on (follow pack instructions)

  6. Drain your wok and wash it completely. Dry and place back on the heat. Add a small splash of vegetable oil.

  7. Grate in the garlic cloves and fry for 20 seconds. Just as it starts to brown, add your soy sauce, vinegar, honey and marmite. Add 6 tablespoons of water. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook for 5 minutes until it starts to thicken. Remove any scuzz with a spoon.

  8. Add 1.5 teaspoons of cornflour to a glass. Pour in 50ml of water and mix it together. Pour your cornflour flurry into the sauce and mix it in.

  9. Once it starts to thicken, place your chicken back into the wok. Stir it through the sauce and cook on a medium heat for 3 minutes.

  10. Serve your chicken on your steaming rice. Garnish with chopped spring onions. Enjoy!
