Chicken Char Siu Recipe

Yields1 ServingPrep Time10 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time40 mins

I made this Chicken Char Siu for lunch this week, although it can easily be up scaled for a tasty dinner. It is full of flavours and the kids loved it.

I can't stress enough that good food doesn't need to take forever to cook. Most of the meals I cook can be ready super quick. This one is no different, 10-15 minutes to prepare and half an hour to cook.

I promised you quick and simple and this chicken char siu recipe wont disappoint.

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and then chuck in the chicken and mix together.

Place the chicken into a roasting tin and pour over any excess sauce. Cook in a preheated oven (180/170 fan degrees) for about 30 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through.

I served this with sticky rice for lunch. But you could serve with a salad or noodles as well.

Finding a spring onion in the fridge I chopped it and chucked over the top to serve.
