Living in a country with a great climate like Australia, outdoor dining and BBQ's are an integral part of our culture. Neil takes us to his balcony kitchen and cooks up a meal for wife Sam and himself.


  • 400 g boneless Chickens pieces

  • vegetable oil

  • 0.5 teaspoon ground Coriander

  • 0.5 teaspoon ground Cumin

  • 4 fresh Coriander roots washed and roughly chopped

  • 2 Cloves Garlic roughly chopped

  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped Ginger

  • 2 large squares silken tofu

  • 1 bunch Chinese broccoli washed and cut into half

  • 1 teaspoon crushed Garlic

  • 1 teaspoon crushed Ginger

  • black vinegar

  • Chilli Oil

  • Sesame Oil

  • Fish sauce

  • caster sugar

  • coriander leaf to serve


  • 1.

    Make the marinade for the chicken by roughly crushing the garlic, ginger and coriander root in a mortar.

  • 2.

    Add the ground coriander and cumin with just enough vegetable oil to bind.

  • 3.

    Heat a bbq grill to hot and place the marinated chicken pieces on.

  • 4.

    Cook until crispy on both sides.

  • 5.

    Toss a little vegetable oil on the flat grill part of your bbq and carefully place the tofu squares on.

  • 6.

    Cook to soften and warm and allow the skin to crispen a little.

  • 7.

    To cook the vegetables, place a wok on the wok jet of your bbq (or on your stove inside if you don't have one).

  • 8.

    Add a little vegetable oil with the Chinese broccoli and stir fry for 2 minutes until it starts to soften.

  • 9.

    Add the crushed garlic and ginger and toss through with a dash of water.

  • 10.

    Season the vegetables with a dash of black vinegar, a few drops each of chilli and sesame oils, a dash of fish sauce and ½ tablespoon of caster sugar.

  • 11.

    Place the chicken pieces over 2 plates, place the tofu alongside with the broccoli and pour the sauce over.

  • 12.

    Top with coriander leaves.

Neil, You are the best presenter in Australia and quite frankly one of the best in the world. Your recipes are always simple yet well presented and beautiful in flavour and texture. I really enjoy the way you talk to your audience with so much enthusiasm. I love Lifestyle food and you are top of the tree.
This recipe is so easy and it will be attempted tomorrow night.
