Possibly my favourite Thai chicken dish and that is saying something. It ticks so many oreosensory buttons. It's sticky, it's crunchy yet soft in the middle. Sweet one moment and spicy the next. Totally irresistible.


  • Chicken Breasts
  • Almonds (2 cups)
  • Almond Flour (1 cup)
  • Fibre Flour (1 cup)
  • Eggs
  • Almond Milk (3 tsp)
  • Fiery Primal Sauce (1 cup)
  • Black Pepper (1 tsp)

Fiery Primal Sauce

  • Sirracha Sauce (50ml)
  • Fish Sauce (3 tbsp)
  • Olive Oil (5 tbsp)
  • Sweet Chilli Sauce (3 tbsp)
  • Honey (2 tbsp)
  • Chilli Flakes (2 tbsp)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (3 tbsp)
  • Lime Juice (3 tbsp)
  • Stevia (1 tsp)


Cut your chicken breasts into 3 or 4 strips (about 2cm wide).

Pulse 2 cup of almonds or cashew nuts in your blender and add them to a cup of almond flour and mix well.

Roll and roll your chicken in fibre flour (add a teaspoon of black pepper) until evenly covered. Then dunk them in a bowl of 2 whisked eggs and 3 tablespoons of milk (cow or almond works well). Then press firmly into your almond nut mixture and make sure they stick well.

Next grease proof a tray and put the chicken spaced out on to it and place in a fridge for half an hour. Don't skip this bit otherwise your coating will not stick as well. Once you remove from the fridge, spray the chicken with olive oil or coconut oil and put into the oven at 220�C. Bake for about 10 minutes, then turn over, spray again and cook for a further 10 minutes.

While everything is cooking it is time to make your sauce (see below).

Next take some tongs and put the cooked chicken one by one into the sauce, then put them all back in the oven for a further 5 or 6 minutes. Keep an eye on them to watch they don't burn.

Fiery Primal Sauce

Now you can make this one of two ways, one - fully on fire, two - very warm!

Bring all the ingredients together. If you want to thicken it up, then add either glucomannan or gelatine at the end. The ingredients above is for the full fiery version, or use the below for very warm

I make my own Sriracha Sauce (see recipe) or you can buy it from M & S, but most supermarkets are now starting to stock it
