Salt & Pepper Chicken

Serves 2
25 mins

This Chinese takeaway favourite has been reinvented M*** F*** style. Our delicious plant-based chicken breasts, crisped up in the air fryer and coated in that moreish salt and pepper seasoning. Superb.


  • 2 Meatless Farm Plant-Based Chicken Breasts
  • 3 tbsp corn flour


For the salt & pepper seasoning…

  • 500g frozen oven chips (or make your own if you have time)
  • 2tsp fine sea salt
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • ½ tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • ½ green pepper, diced
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, squashed


To garnish…

  • 3 tsp sesame seeds
  • fresh coriander
  • Some epic curry sauce


  1. Dice your Meatless Farm Plant-Based Chicken Breats into little 4cm nuggets, toss them in corn flour then spray with veg oil until evenly covered. Place the chicken in the air fryer at 200C for 8 mins. Turn the pieces half way through cooking, keep going until all the pieces are mega crispy.
  2. Add half of the onion, peppers, a spray of oil and mix well. Season with 1/3 of the salt and pepper seasoning and cook for a further 2 – 4 mins. Tip on to a tray and leave to one side while you do the chips.
  3. Dust the chips in cornflour, spray with oil then place in the air fryer at 200C for 10 mins. Give them a quick mix, then cook for a further 2 mins. Add the remaining onions, peppers, spring onion, chillies and season with 1/3 of salt & pepper seasoning and blast in the air fryer for another 4 mins.
  4. Add the chicken back into the airfryer with the chips and cook for 60 seconds.
  5. Arrange the chips and chicken on a plate, sprinkle over the last of the salt & pepper seasoning. Garnish with sesame seeds and coriander if you’re into that kind of thing. Serve the lot with a bucket of curry sauce and you’re ready for a nice time.
