Ingredients
For the Salt and Pepper Chicken
For the Spice Mix
Instructions
To make the Salt and Pepper Spice Mix
  1. Toast the salt flakes in a hot pan until they start to brown – it’s very important to do this to get the true salt and pepper flavour
  2. Mix the toasted salt and all the other spice mix ingredients together
To make the Salt and Pepper Chicken
  1. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with a couple of teaspoons of the spice mix
  2. Place them on a baking tray and cook as per pack instructions (usually around 30 minutes at 190°C)
  3. When the chicken is cooked heat up a wok sprayed with some Frylight
  4. Add the spring onions, onions, chilli and peppers to the wok and cook until they start to brown slightly
  5. Add the chicken thighs to the wok along with 1 or 2 tablespoons of Spice Mix. Don’t add it all at once, add it a bit at a time, taste and stop when it’s spicy enough
  6. Cook through for another 3 or 4 minutes, then serve sprinkled with some finely chopped spring onions
Recipe Notes

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavour enhancer commonly added to most Chinese food from the takeaway. There have been many debates about the use of MSG, so if you prefer not use it you can just leave it out.
