  • red chilli 1, thinly sliced
  • rice wine vinegar 2 tbsp
  • skinless chicken breast 2 large
  • plain flour 6 tbsp
  • eggs 2, beaten
  • dried breadcrumbs 140g
  • roasted peanuts 4 tbsp, finely chopped
  • sunflower oil or vegetable oil 2 tbsp
  • mini baguette or hot dog buns 4
  • coriander bunch
  • carrot 2, cut into matchsticks
  • ready-made crispy onions 2 heaped tbsp


  • rice vinegar 2 tbsp
  • crunchy or smooth peanut butter 2 tbsp
  • light soy sauce 2 tbsp
  • sweet chilli sauce 2 tsp


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Mix the chilli with the rice vinegar and sugar.

  • Step 2

    For the satay sauce, whisk the ingredients in a bowl with 2-4 tbsp of water until smooth.

  • Step 3

    Halve the chicken breasts lengthways so you have two long strips.

  • Step 4

    Cover with clingfilm and use a rolling pin to bash out the thicker end so it evens out the thickness.

  • Step 5

    Put the flour and some seasoning onto a plate and toss with the chicken.

  • Step 6

    Put the eggs onto a separate plate, and the breadcrumbs, peanuts and oil onto another.

  • Step 7

    Rub the oil into the crumbs so everything is well mixed.

  • Step 8

    Dip each chicken strip first into the egg to coat, then roll in the nutty crumbs.

  • Step 9

    Put on a baking sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes until golden and crispy, turning halfway through. Slice.

  • Step 10

    Split the baguettes in half and stuff each with coriander leaves and carrot matchsticks.

  • Step 11

    Add pieces of sliced chicken schnitzel to each, then drizzle with satay sauce.

  • Step 12

    Drain the pickled chilli and sprinkle over with the crispy onions.
