“Sourced this recipe from 'Chang's' webite - they make a range of Asian sauces you can buy from the supermarket. The Ponzu Dressing/Marinade we used was the 'Chang's' brand. A really easy to prepare and delicious dish, considering I don't normally do 'sweet and meat'. The recipe uses thigh fillets, but we prefer breast so substituted those.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 chicken thighs, skin and excess fat removed and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 10 tablespoons ponzu sauce, dressing or 10 tablespoons marinade
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

  1. Marinate chicken in 6 tablespoons of Ponzu dressing. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours. Remove from fridge half an hour before cooking.
  2. Combine 2 tablespoons of oil, mirin, orange juice and rice vinegar in a large bowl and toss through cabbage, carrot and onion. Cover and refrigerate until required.
  3. Heat a wok or large frying pan until very hot. Drain the marinade from the chicken.
