Peanut Soy & Sesame Chicken



⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This marinade is a family favourite, it works well on so many things including, chicken fillets, pork fillet (cut into kebabs) and in the summer you may remember me sharing a whole spatchcock chicken with this recipe. You do need to be careful though as the marinade can quickly burn if cooked too long. My advice would be, if you think it’s colouring too fast on top and the chicken isn’t cooked, cover with foil and continue in the oven.
