  • To make the pickle, toss all of the ingredients together in a bowl and set aside until ready to serve.
  • To prepare the chicken, lay the seasoned flour, egg and breadcrumbs out on separate plates/containers/on a tray. Coat the chicken breasts in the flour, then dip into the egg and finally into the breadcrumbs, using your hands to encourage the breadcrumbs to stick. We want the chicken to be crispy!
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and carefully fry the breaded chicken breasts for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and leave to drain on kitchen paper.
  • To heat the stir-in sauce, pour into a saucepan and cook gently for a couple of minutes until warmed through and bubbling.
  • To serve, plate up the rice and salad and a few spoonfuls of the pickle. Slice the chicken in strips diagonally and place on top of the rice. Drizzle over your sauce.

*Whilst chillis are a low FODMAP ingredient, some people with IBS have higher numbers of chilli pepper pain receptors in the gut, which can cause symptoms. If you’re sensitive to chilli, you can leave it out of this recipe.

  1. Followed the recipe and loved this! My only comment is that frying the chicken as instructed didn’t cook it all the way through so I popped it into the oven at 200° for 10 minutes and it was perfect. Maybe my chicken breasts were a bit big.
