TOMORROW is Father’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than with a home-made fakeaway.
Both of these recipes are amazingly easy to cook and your dad will be so grateful.
Cook up some sticky sesame chicken for your dad on Father’s Day[/caption]
Remember to get a few beers in the fridge to go with you fakeaway to give him the special day he deserves!
My batching top tip this week is to double or quadruple these recipes when you are making them.
It’s always handy to have a few fakeaway meals in the freezer for when you have the urge for a takeaway – it’ll save you so much money, plus it’s healthier.

Add your chicken strips to a large freezer bag along with the cornflour. Mix well with your hands so all the chicken is coated in the cornflour, and set aside.
To a smaller freezer bag, add the sauce ingredients, mix and put this with the large freezer bag.
Ready to freeze
Place the large freezer bag with the smaller freezer bag inside it flat in the freezer
Ready to cook
Remove from the freezer and leave both bags to defrost. Once defrosted, place a pan on a medium heat and add a good splash of oil.
Once hot, add the chicken pieces and cook for around 10 minutes until cooked through.
Pour over the sauce to coat the chicken, cook for 1 minute until the chicken then remove from the heat and serve. This is great served with fluffy rice and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
