This marinade ensures that your chicken is salty, sweet, nutty + juicy!
Sesame + Soy Takeaway Chicken Recipe

This marinade ensures your chicken is full of flavour + stays moist. So any leftovers will be perfect in a salad for meal prep.

You could also use the marinade over tofu instead of chicken.



  • 4 Chicken Fillets

  • 4 tbsps Soy Sauce

  • 2 tbsps Sesame Oil

  • Small piece fresh ginger

  • 2 Spring onions chopped finely

  • Juice 1 Lime

To Serve: Noodles of your choice + a green vegetable.

Step 1: Sauce

In a jug squeeze in the lime, add the chopped spring onions, add the soy sauce + sesame oil. Using a spoon scrape the outer skin off the ginger then finely grate into the jug. Mix + taste - make any necessary adjustments to suit you.

Step 2: Marinade

Place the chicken breasts on a board + cut length ways (with the grain of the chicken). You should be able to cut a normal size chicken breast into 3 strips. This ensures the chicken gets coated with more of the marinade. Chop all the chicken place in a bowl + pour over the marinade.

Ideally leave to marinade overnight or at least 30 mins.

Step 3: Cook

When you are ready to cook pre-heat your oven to 180c. Get out a baking sheet + place your chicken strips on. Discard the marinade it has done its job now + if you put too much on the baking sheet it will just burn + smoke. Cook in oven for c20 mins or until the strips are cooked all the way through.

Step 4: Serve

Take out of the oven + serve with the sides of your choice. Let any leftovers cool completely, then store in an airtight container, perfect for meal prep. .
