Crispy Chicken with Mint

This is a fabulous way of presenting chicken in a most unusual way. It’s crisp, moist, has a crunchy coating and is served with a sweet Hoisin sauce. It is great served at a cocktail party as part of a range of different courses.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 1 minute
Makes: 10 serves


  • 400g chicken fillets
  • 2 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 90g Udon noodles, cooked
  • 10 toothpicks
  • Hoisin sauce, store-bought


Cut the chicken fillets into neat 2cm x 6cm batons. Dip into the beaten egg, then coat with the panko bread crumbs.

Pierce each piece with a toothpick. Wrap a mint leaf around each piece and twist two of the noodles around to cover the leaf. Brush a little of the egg mix around to secure the noodles and deep-fry at 185°C for one minute until golden and crisp.

Present on a platter lined with a banana leaf square and a bowl of the Hoisin sauce.
