Recipe by: Matt Preston
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
- Preheat oven to 200C° and lightly oil a baking tray.
- Using a food processor, stand mixer or stick blender, blitz the peanuts until they become a fine meal. Add the hoisin sauce, vinegar, salt and a little warm water if needed to loosen. Tip into a large mixing bowl, add the chicken pieces and rub them all over with the paste.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the paste is all dark and bubbling. You can always give them a quick blast under the grill at the end to create those dark bits.
- To serve, slice the chicken thighs and serve a slice with Asian herbs wrapped in a lettuce leaf.
