Chilli Chicken Tenderloins …
Recipe type: Chicken
Ingredients …
  • • 2 fresh long red chillies
  • • ½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • • ½ teaspoon salt
  • • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed
  • • 600g chicken tenderloins
  • • 1 lime
Method …
  1. Remove the top of the chillies, slice in half lengthways and remove the seeds. Chop roughly and add to a container with the chilli flakes, garlic, salt, soy sauce, red wine vinegar and oil. Using a tall, narrow container will prevent the ingredients from splashing out when processed/blended.
  2. Using a stick blender, process all ingredients until almost smooth.
  3. Add brown sugar to processed marinade and stir to combine.
  4. Add chicken tenderloins to a large glass bowl, pour over chilli marinade and toss chicken to coat well.
  5. Heat a non-stick frypan over a medium to high heat, add the chicken. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is browned and cooked right through.
  6. Remove the chicken from the frypan, squeeze some lime juice over the cooked chicken and serve with steamed rice and salad.
