Glazed Chicken and Bell Peppers

with couscous and chives

Ketjap manis—also known as Indonesian ketchup—is a popular Asian condiment similar to soy sauce, but sweeter. It forms the base of the syrupy, tangy glaze coating the succulent chicken and veg in this delicious dish.

Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Roughly chop the chives.
  • Halve the chilli lengthways. Deseed and thinly slice.
  • Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into strips.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Make the Couscous
2
  • Add the couscous and stock powder to a medium bowl.
  • Add 200ml boiling water (500ml for 4p) and cover with a plate or cling film. 
  • Leave aside for 10 mins.
  • Add 2 tbsp flour (double for 4p) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the chicken to coat. IMPORTANT: Wash hands after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Fry the Veg
3
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the bell pepper and fry until starting to soften, stirring occasionally, 3-4 mins.
  • Add the onion and another drizzle of oil (if necessary) and cook until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins.
  • Add the garlic, cook for 1 min more.
  • Once cooked, remove the veg from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Cook the Chicken
4
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, fry the chicken, shifting frequently until golden all over, 6-7 mins.
  • Once the chicken is golden, stir back in the onion and bell pepper.
  • Cook together for 1 min. Add the peas
Simmer the Sauce
5
  • Add the ketjap manis, vinegar, red Thai paste and 75ml water (double for 4p).
  • Add the chilli (use less if you don't like spice) and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has reduced slightly and the chicken is cooked through, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Remove from the heat, taste and season with salt, pepper and sugar.

TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel the sauce needs loosening.

Finish and Serve
6
  • Fluff up the couscous with a fork and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon into bowls and top with the chicken and veg.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of chives.
