Salt & Pepper Chicken with Broccolini

From Donna Hay Instant Entertaining.

1 tbs salt
2 tsp szechwan pepper (or black cracked pepper)
2 red chillis
1 tsp chinese five spice powder
4 chicken breasts
400g broccolini
1 tbs oil

Mix salt, pepper, chillis and chinese five spice powder together. Rub onto diced chicken breast. Heat oil in large frypan and cook chicken for 8mins. Add broccolini after cooking chicken for 4mins. Serve with noodles.

EASE: 5/5.
Season chicken with spice mixture and then cook in skillet - easy peasy.
Prep time: 4mins to dice chicken and season.
Cooking time: 9mins to cook chicken - the broccolini only takes 4mins to cook.
TOTAL: 13mins.

TASTE: 4/5.
I quartered the recipe, but added 1/4 tsp more five spice powder. I really liked the flavours, Ryan thought it was too salty but he ate it all. Would only use 1/4 tsp of salt and more chinese five spice next time. I would also add more broccolini next time.

Would I make it again: Yes.
Very quick and easy
