Lemon Chicken for Scoff Food \ VIDEO

Fluorescent yellow, tangy, crispy and tender all at the same time… it can only be lemon chicken! You won’t need a deep fryer for our version of this takeaway staple, just a big frying pan suitable for shallow frying. We like to use a cornflour and sesame seed coating: it fries up to a gorgeously golden crust and the sesame seeds give off a wonderfully warm and nutty aroma that pairs surprisingly well with the zingy sauce.

Avo and Sweet Chilli Glass Noodle Salad for Scoff Food \ VIDEO

Aish, we’ve all been there. You know, that moment when you tell yourself very sternly: yep, this is definitely gonna be the last forkful. After which you try to console yourself that it really would have been the last forkful, if only that perfectly crispy golden roast potato hadn’t ‘magically’ appeared on your plate. If only that little glint of light hadn’t bounced off the honey glazed ham and right into your eye.

It lasts for hours. And then some because – let’s be real -you just know you won’t be resisting dessert. If your Christmas was all about the nom-noms (as ours always is), you might be feeling like January is primetime to pull back and detox a little. You’re craving something lighter …

Classic Egg Fried Rice with a Crunchy Surprise for Scoff Food \ VIDEO

We recently had an absolute ball of a time filming a fab brand new series with Videojug’s Scoff Food! In the first video of our new Asian Bites series we whipped up a classic and foolproof egg fried rice. Then we jazzed it up with a super indulgent, moreish-beyond-words, crunchy and golden surprise: deep fried cashews! Getting one of these in your spoonful of rice is like finding a cheeky £2 coin in your wallet when you could’ve sworn there were only 10p coins jangling about. In other words, it’s a real delight! For the best fried rice, cook the rice the night before and allow it to chill in the fridge – this way your grains will be nicely separated from each other when it comes to stir-frying. 200 g long grain white rice 4 tbsp vegetable oil 5 eggs 1 tsp ginger, finely diced 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp ground white pepper 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 tsp light soy sauce 1/4 tsp dark soy sauce 2 spring onions 80g cashew nuts 1.
