Serves 2

Ingredients
2 x 150g potato, washed
30g butter, melted
2 Tbsp Lee Kum Kee Sesame Wok Oil

Seasoning
1 sachet of Lee Kum Kee Kung Pao Stir-fry Sauce

  4. Place on a baking tray and brush the potatoes with melted butter and season with salt.
  5. Bake in the pre-heated oven at 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6 for 8 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Sauté onion in Sesame Wok Oil until soft. Add chicken. After chicken is cooked, add the sweetcorn and Lee Kum Kee Kung Pao Stir-fry Sauce.
  7. To assemble, place the potatoes on a plate and chicken on top. Sprinkle crushed and whole cashew nuts for decoration. Serve with creme fraiche on the side.

Plating Tips

  • The chicken mixture can be shaped as quenelle and placed on top of the Hasselback potato.
