    How to make it

    Mix the Organic chicken thighs and marinate in Oyster Sauce for 15. minutes. Make a seasoned coating by adding the plain flour, sea salt, ground white pepper, dried chilli flakes, Chinese five spice and dip the chicken pieces in. Then dip in the egg. Then dip in Panko breadcrumbs. Place the pieces on a tray, spray over olive oil and cook at 180 degrees in the oven baking for 12 minutes.
    Meanwhile make the spring onion pancakes. In a large bowl, mix the plain flour with all the strong bread flour and the salt. Add the boiling water and mix into a dough. Set aside. Heat the rapeseed oil and sesame oil in a small pan and add the white pepper, black pepper and salt. Remove from the heat.
    Roll out the dough into a flat circle and spread the seasoned oil onto it, taking care not to spread it right to the edges. Scatter the spring onions onto the dough, then scatter the remaining plain flour over the top. Cut the dough into eight sections, leaving each section attached 2cm from the centre. Take one section and fold towards the centre of the circle, then repeat with the remaining sections. Roll out again and repeat the circular folding. (This creates stretchy chewy layers in the pancake).
    Roll out the dough again into a rectangle and then roll into a long Swiss roll shape; it should be about 10cm/4in wide. Divide into six pieces and divide each piece into two. Flatten each piece with your palm and use your hands or a rolling pin to stretch the dough into a circle. You should end up with 12 small pancakes.
    Heat a wok or pan over a medium heat. Add a Tbsp rapeseed oil and swirl it up the sides of the pan (alternatively you can brush the pancakes with some rapeseed oil on each side to ensure even cooking). Add two to three pancakes and cook until golden-brown, turning halfway. Repeat until all the pancakes are cooked. Cover with foil and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
    Remove the Popcorn chicken from the oven and stack over the pancake, drizzle over Sriracha Mayonnaise and sprinkle over some toasted sesame seeds, spring onion, coriander and freshly sliced chillies and eat immediately.
