Chestnut Chicken

1-2 pieces of chicken per person
Cooked and peeled chestnuts (at least 4 pp)
Hoisin Sauce (Coles/Safeway)
Chu Hou Sauce (Coles/Safeway)
Garlic (1 clove pp)
Spring Onion
Soy Sauce

1. Clean and rinse the chicken, roll it in cornflour (in a bowl), quickly brown it in a pan - it doesn't need to be fully cooked because it'll be simmered later for 20 mins

2. Put the chicken pieces in a pot with just enough boiling water to cover it, simmer gently

3. Add 2 Tbs each of Chu Hou and Hoisin, 1 Tbs soy, and salt to taste

4. After 15 mins simmer - add the chestnuts, spring onion, and some thickener (two tablespoons of cornflour in a glass of cold water, stirred well, then slowly stirred into the boiling soup)

5. At around the 20 minute mark it's done. Serve with rice and some veg
