Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (or use mixed thighs and drumsticks)
  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 green chilli (or to taste), sliced in rings
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • 4 star anise
  • 2 tbsp palm sugar or dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Thai fish sauce or light soy sauce
  • 1 x 400ml tin coconut milk
  • 50g dry roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 125g babycorn
  • 100g fine green beans
  • 1 x 31g pack coriander, leaves only

Step by step

  1. In a large, lidded sauté pan, heat the oil and sauté the chicken, in batches, until golden brown all over. Remove to a plate. Drain off most of the fat, leaving a tablespoon behind.
  2. Return to the heat and add the onions, garlic and chilli. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring, until caramelised.
  3. Add the spices, sugar and fish sauce (or soy sauce) and cook together, stirring, for a few minutes.
    Tip
    Try swapping the chicken for chunks of thick fish fileet, and the beans can be replaced with asparagus if preferred.
  4. Add the coconut milk and 400ml water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the peanuts and bring back to a boil, then turn down to a rapid simmer and put the lid on.
  6. After 10 minutes, turn the chicken pieces over, remove the lid and continue cooking for a further 20 minutes. Stir in the babycorn and green beans, making sure they're submerged in the sauce. Cover with the lid and cook for a further 5-10 minutes until tender.
  7. Season to taste and scatter with coriander leaves. Serve with rice.
