Hot and Sour Rhubarb with Chicken

This is another favourite recipe I found on the internet. Serves 2 (change servings and units if necessary)


2 Chicken breasts, cut into chunks


  1. 200 grams rhubarb, chopped up small
  2. 150 mls water
  3. 2 tablespoons runny honey
  4. 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  5. 2 garlic cloves peeled and crushed
  6. 1 dried red chilli or( 1 inch tubed chilli) or half teaspoon dried chilli
  7. 1 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice powder
  8. 1 teaspoon dried ginger
  9. 150 gms dried noodles
  10. Fresh coriander (cilantro)
  11. 1 lime

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C  (350 F)
  2. Put the chicken pieces in a casserole dish
  3. Mix all the marinade ingredients (rhubarb through to ginger) in a bowl, pour over the chicken.  Mix with chicken.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for around 45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Check it a couple of times whilst cooking as you may need to give it a stir to stop it sticking.
  5. Just before the chicken is cooked, boil some water in a saucepan and cook the noodles.
  6. Drain the noodles, serve and ladle the chicken and sauce over.  Add a generous amount of fresh coriander to the top and half a lime on the side.

Enjoy :O)
