Chicken w Mint

Chicken is an all-time favourite in this house. A friend of mine calls it the Black Man’s Trap and says chicken is the reason why there are no black superheroes. I don’t know about that, but I do know chicken is always chicken and a touch of mint gives it a special kind of umph!

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1tsp ginger
  • 1tsp paprika
  • 1tsp red pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1tbsp oil
  • 1 orange
  • 0,5 cup sliced sweet onion
  • 2 large cloves of garlic
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper
  • 1tbsp cornstarch
  • 2tbsp chilli sauce
  • 0,25tsp allspice
  • 0,5tsp nutmeg
  • 2sprigs (or more) fresh mint

Directions:

  1. Dice the chicken, place it in a bowl and add ginger, paprika, red pepper and zest from the lime.
  2. Place in fridge for a minimum of 15 mins, but ideally over night.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet and add sliced onions, yellow bell pepper and crushed garlic.
  4. Fry al dente (roughly 3mins) and remove from heat.
  5. Put veggies on a plate for later.
  6. Heat skillet again and fry the chicken for 3-4 mins.
  7. Add the juice from the lime and the orange, 2tsp orange zest, chilli sauce, allspice and nutmeg.
  8. When liquid comes to a boil, add the veggies and the cornstarch.
  9. Let simmer for a couple of minutes until it gets the right sauciness (pun intended!)
  10. Add mint and serve over rice.
