Instructions

For the Honey Soy Chicken:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F)(without fan).
  2. Line a large baking tray with foil for easier cleaning up later.
  3. In a food processor, blend together the garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce, red chilli, sesame oil, and fish sauce (see Kitchen Notes below if you do not have a food processor).
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut a few incisions into the chicken pieces on the diagonal.
  5. Place the chicken pieces on the roasting tray and pour over the marinade.
  6. Use your hands to rub the marinade into the chicken pieces, making sure that each piece is well-coated.
  7. Bake the chicken for 45-60 minutes, or until they are bronzed and golden. During this time, turn the chicken over once or twice so that it can brown on all sides. And while you are in the kitchen, you may as well put on a pot of steamed rice to make the meal more substantial.
  8. Once the chicken is ready, remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle the chicken with the toasted sesame seeds.

For the Pineapple Cucumber Salad:

  1. Place the thinly sliced red onion in a salad bowl with the lime juice to steep for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Halve and de-seed the cucumber, before chopping the cucumber into large bite-sized chunks.
  3. Peel and chop the pineapple into similar-sized pieces as the cucumber.
  4. Add the cucumber and pineapple to the steeped onions and toss everything to combine.
  5. Season with sea salt just before serving.

Kitchen Notes

MAKE-AHEAD TIPS To prepare the chicken ahead of time, simply place the slashed chicken pieces into a large zip-lock freezer bag and add the marinade. Close the bag and make sure the chicken pieces are well-coated. For extra reassurance against leaks and stinky spills in the fridge, I would double-bag the chicken before putting it into the fridge, where it can be kept for 1 to 2 days. Before you cook the chicken, bring it to room temperature first by leaving the unopened bag on the kitchen counter for 20-30 minutes.

USING A GRATER
If you do not have a food processor, simply grate the garlic and ginger into a bowl, and stir through the rest of the marinade ingredients.
