  • 4 chicken fillets, flattened
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 fennel bulb, shaved using a vegetable peeler
  • 1/2 cup good-quality chicken stock
  • 170 g asparagus spears, sliced lengthways and blanched, for serving
  • For the chilli sauce, mix:
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 5 T fish sauce
  • 2 red chillies, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Wrap a chopping board in clingwrap, place the chicken fillets onto the board, then cover with another layer of clingwrap. Using a rolling pin, flatten the chicken breasts. Remove the clingwrap, then season to taste.

Place a sheet of baking paper onto a baking tray and add the fennel. Top with the chicken and pour over the chicken stock. Cover with another sheet of baking paper and crimp the edges to form a parcel. Cook in the oven for 15–20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and open the parcel. Pour over the chilli sauce and serve with the asparagus spears.
