Tips for fussy eaters

Can't handle the heat? Go easy on the chilli!

Pro tip

Make the chicken and dressing a day in advance, then gently heat them up again just before serving. This will intensify the flavours!

Heat a pan with a lid over a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the chicken breast and fry for 2 min on each side until browned. Once browned, add the water to the pan, cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 12 min.

5 Shred and make dressing

Once the chicken is ready, transfer it to a plate. Remove the empty pan (leave any pan juices in there!) from the heat and immediately crush the garlic into it. Stir for 30 secs. Whisk in the soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce, peanut butter and all of the lime juice. Using two forks, pull the chicken until shredded. Return the chicken to the pan and give everything a good mix up.
