Line a shallow ovenproof dish with the chicken pieces.

To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a jug and pour over the chicken. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for anywhere between 30 minutes and three days. Allow the dish to return to room temperature before cooking.

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Scatter the cashew nuts over the chicken and stir into the sauce.

Bake for 20–25 minutes until the chicken is just cooked and still succulent. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and coriander, season with black pepper and serve with a salad of shredded vegetables and greens and some steamed rice.
