• 460g pack of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into roughly 2cm pieces
  • 1 sachet hoisin and garlic stir-fry sauce
  • 1 red pepper, cut into roughly 2cm pieces
  • 1 yellow pepper, cut into roughly 2cm pieces
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Lime wedges, to serve

For the egg-fried rice

  • 240g basmati rice
  • 150g frozen peas
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 medium eggs, beaten
  • 6 spring onions, thinly sliced


  1. 1

    Place the chicken pieces in a bowl and combine with the hoisin sauce. Cover and leave to marinade for 20-30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Meanwhile, cook the basmati rice to packet instructions, then set aside to cool slightly.

  2. 2

    Once the chicken has marinated, thread it on to 8 skewers with pieces of pepper in between. (There should be 4-5 pieces of both the chicken and peppers on each skewer.) Brush any excess hoisin sauce over the skewers.

  3. 3

    Heat the oil in a large, preferably non-stick, frying pan over a medium heat. Add 4 skewers and cook for 3 minutes on each side, until dark brown all over. Transfer to a baking sheet then repeat with the remaining 4 skewers. Place in the oven for 10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the peppers are softened.

  4. 4

    Meanwhile, make the egg-fried rice. Place the peas in a heatproof bowl and pour over boiling water to cover. Leave to sit for 1 minute, then drain.

  5. 5

    Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a medium/high heat. Once hot, add the basmati rice and cook for 2 minutes, then add the beaten egg and cook for another 2 minutes or until the egg is just cooked. Add the peas and spring onions. Season to taste.

  6. 6

    Once the chicken is cooked, divide the rice between 4 plates and top each plate with 2 chicken skewers. Serve each with a lime wedge.
