1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.

2. Make the sauce in a bowl by mixing the spice mix with around 100ml warm water. Add the grated cheese to make a thick sauce. Add more water if too thick.

4. In the same pan, cook the chicken until translucent, around 2 mins each side, then add half the spicy cheesy sauce mixture. Bring it the mixture to a bubbling boil and turn the heat off.
