I’m so excited to share this delicious Chilli Chicken recipe, it’s a perfect Saturday night fakeaway.

It’s a real #veganuary2021 dinner, double crisped chicken, in a spicy, tangy sauce mixed with crunchy vegetables served with rice or noodles!!

-Slice the nuggets diagonally into half pieces.

-In a bowl, add 3/4 cup of corn flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, garlic powder, pepper and chilli flakes. Mix with some water to form a thick batter. Add the sliced nuggets and coat well without breaking.
