Are you someone who loves their Chinese Takeaway but it goes against your ‘Healthy’ regime! Well below is a much healthier version of a popular Chinese dish…all the flavour without the guilt!! If you have ever wondered how the chicken is so tender in takeaways, well wonder no more as the secret to tender ‘melting’ chicken is in this recipe (it’s all in the marinade)!!
If you are not a fan of seafood just omit the prawns …it tastes amazing either way!!
