• 1 whole chicken
  • 125g Wattie’s WOK Creations Honey Soy Stir-Fry Sauce
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • Sesame Rice
  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp toasted white or black sesame seeds

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. To butterfly the chicken, using kitchen shears or a sharp knife, cut the chicken down each side of the backbone. Discard the backbone. Turn the breast side up. Press firmly on the breastbone to flatten. Cut slashes into the skin of the thighs and drums.

3. Place the chicken into an oven dish lined with baking paper. Spread the Wattie’s WOK Creations Honey Soy Stir-Fry Sauce over both sides of the chicken. Tuck the wing tips underneath. Roast for 50 to 60 minutes or until the juices run clear when pierced through the thickest part of the thigh.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the rice. Rinse the rice with cold water through a sieve. Place in a medium saucepan with 3 1/2 cups water, sesame oil and salt to taste. Bring to the boil over high heat then reduce heat to very low, cover with a tight fitting lid and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Turn the heat off and allow the pot to stand, covered, for a further 10 minutes. When ready to serve, remove the lid, fluff up the rice and place in a serving bowl. Sprinkle over toasted sesame seeds.

5. To serve, garnish the chicken with the spring onion. Serve with the sesame rice and Asian greens.

I stir-fried the onion and the chicken breast as per instructions on the packet. Then added a packet of Watties Wok Creations Malaysian Style Stir-Fry Vegetables.
The result was nothing but delicious.
As I cook for myself I now have a second helping in the deep freeze.
Thank you letting me patake in this promotion.

A quick and simple dish made delicious by marinating the chicken with the Honey Soy sachet. Could vary by marinating sliced chicken breast then stir fry along with Vegas and serve with the sesame rice.

We loved this asian twist on roast chicken. It was perfect for barbecuing and served with grilled asian vegetables and sticky rice.

We really enjoyed the honey soy chicken with sesame rice and wilted greens. For me personally, next time I will make it with chicken breasts or thighs because I’m not a fan of boned meat, but just being able to open a packet of sauce and pour it on and get such a lovely marinade was what I need when I get home from work - no fluffing around. The accompaniments went great with it too.
