Spicy Pancakes with Chicken
Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) was upon us again and we decided
this time to spice it up! We seasoned some plain flour and added
a cajun spice mix, fresh chopped green finger chilli and piri
piri spice mix.
A good heaped teaspoon of hot smoked paprika and mixed the flour
well. We coated slices of chicken breast in the flour.
And let the chicken take on the spicy flavours. Babs had spotted
some ready made pancake mix for us to use as a base. To the mixture
was added water.
We mixed it into a smooth batter adding more water to make it
slightly thinner. We also added a few grinds of our cajun and
piri piri spice mixes.
We ladled the mixture into a warm flat based pan and cooked for
a few minutes each side until cooked through. We kept the made
pancakes warm in the oven.
We then fired our spicy chicken strips until cooked and crispy
on the outside.
In the remaining spicy oil we fired some red, green and yellow
strips of pepper. We then assembled the pancakes adding the chicken,
some chopped spring onion and the peppers and wrapped them up.
