This sweet chilli chicken recipe from Shaun Rankin will fast become one of your go-to dishes - a big-flavoured yet simple recipe, ideal for midweek dinners

To prepare the chicken breasts, slice them into strips and place in a mixing bowl
Add all ingredients - except the pak choi and the salad leaves - to the bowl
Mix well to cover the chicken and leave to marinate for 1 hour
Once ready to cook, place a wok or frying pan over a high heat. Add the chicken strips gradually, without stirring - they need to be left still to caramelise on the outside
Once caramelised and golden, turn over the strips and cook to reach the same colour on the other side, ensuring they are cooked through
Pick 6 pak choi leaves from the head and add to the chicken. Stir well to wilt and coat the leaves in pan juices
Tasty trivia
Pak choi (or bok choy) is in the same family as regular cabbage, and is also called Chinese cabbage. It is really nutritious as it’s packed with Vitamin A – which helps us see better in dim light
Divide the chicken and pak choi between 2 plates, spoon over the pan juices and garnish with the salad leaves. Serve immediately
