Fun Low Carb Party Food : Boom Bang-a-Bang Chicken Cups

Boom Bang-a-Bang chicken cups

Classic British Coronation chicken gets a makeover, served in Little Gem lettuce leaves with peanut and coconut sauce. This is such a fun recipe, just great for a party, or lunch time get-together.

Serves 8

100g smooth peanut butter
140g full-fat coconut yogurt or natural yogurt mixed with 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
2-3 spring onions, finely shredded
3 cooked skinless chicken breasts, shredded
2 Baby Gem lettuces, big leaves separated
½ cucumber, halved lengthways, seeds scraped out with a teaspoon, cut into matchsticks
toasted sesame seeds, for sprinkling

1. In your smallest pan, gently warm the peanut butter, yogurt, 3 tbsp water, sweet chilli and soy sauce until melted together into a smooth sauce. Set aside and allow to cool.
2. Mix the spring onions and chicken into the sauce and season. Chill until the party – keep the lettuce leaves and cucumber under damp kitchen paper.
3. To assemble, add a bundle of cucumber to each lettuce leaf cup, plus a spoon of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sit on a big platter for everyone to dig in. Or simply serve a pile of lettuce leaves alongside bowls of chicken and cucumber.

Works out at 6 carbs per serving
