Chicken & King Prawn Pad Thai with Wilding’s Habanero & Lemongrass Duck Crackling

Chicken Pad Thai with Chilli Flavour Duck Crackling


  • 1 chicken Breast
  • 200g King Prawn
  • 1 x 30g Wilding’s Habanero & Lemongrass Duck Crackling
  • 120g Bean Sprouts
  • 100g Rice Noodles
  • Lime (for dressing and garnish)
  • 1 Carrot - shaved into ribbons
  • Spring onion - long sliced
  • Coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove of Garlic, crushed
  • 3 x BIrd's eye Chili
  • Thai Fish Sauce
  • Palm Sugar
  • Sesame Oil
  • Method:

    Unless using ‘ready to cook’ rice noodles, soak them in cold water for 10 minutes and drain.


    Season the chicken with a little salt and fry in a teaspoon of duck fat on a medium heat with the skin side placed down.


    Weighing down the chicken with a couple of small dishes helps create a crisp and even skin. Cook the chicken breast around 70% of the time on the skin side down so it doesn’t become dry, you’ll only want to hear the pan sizzle very slightly and a long and slow cook is best to preserve tenderness, but be sure that the chicken is cooked through to a temperature of above 70c.


    Once cooked, place the chicken aside to rest, leaving the pan ready to cook the other ingredients.

    In the same pan that you cooked the chicken in, stir fry the vegetables on a high heat with the garlic until heated through but still crisp but. Add the prawns and blend into the vegetables and noodles.


    Dress the vegetables with the fish sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and add the palm sugar and blend in.

    Present the dish onto a plate before slicing the chicken breast with the skin side down to preserve in place. Finish by garnishing with chopped coriander, spring onion, chilli, lime wedge and finally your Wilding's Crackling.
