Salt and Pepper Chicken Fakeaway Recipe...

We are big fans of a Chinese takeaway but as I have said before, it's expensive and to be honest I think home made is always better. I am always on the lookout for new recipes to try and for a while I had been seeing recipes for salt and pepper chicken and people doing a 'Chinese Fakeaway'. Salt and Pepper chicken is something we have when we get a Chinese and I had no idea what my own would taste like but I gave it a go and you know what it was great!
250g chicken, cut into chunks
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp soy sauce
Around 5 or 6 tbsp of smash, enough to cover a small plate, you may need to add more at some point depending how big the chicken chunks are
2 handfuls of frozen peppers or 1 pepper sliced
2 handfuls of frozen red onion or 1 sliced
1 tsp chilli powder

1. Pre - heat oven to 200 degrees and spray a baking tray with fry light
2. Cut your chicken into chunks and then in a bowl beat one egg then add 1 tbsp of soy sauce
3. On a small plate, add the smash 
4. Add the chicken to the egg mix then cover in smash, place on baking tray. Repeat until all chicken chunks are coated
5. Bake in the oven for around 30 minutes
6. While the chicken is cooking, soften onions and peppers in a small pan with frylight. When soft, add 1 tsp of chilli powder
7. If you want to serve yours with Egg Fried Rice like we did, prepare your rice as normal then scramble eggs in a seperate pan, when both are cooked, mix together in a pan and add a glug of soy sauce. You can also add peas but we didn't have any. You could also use noodles if you don't want rice with it
8. To serve, add your egg fried rice to a bowl then top with onions and peppers. You can now top with your cooked chicken!

That's it! This works out so much cheaper than a takeaway and it tastes delicious. It's a perfect meal for a Friday night when you just want something tasty that doesn't require too much effort!
