This is so easy!

Fry chicken pieces in olive oil until pieces are sealed and 1/2 way cooked – add a few drops of water if needed.

Mix peanut butter with hot chicken stock – stir until smooth.

Add peanut butter stock mixture to chicken pieces and simmer slowly for about 10 minutes

Sprinkle with Woolies spice – if you don’t have it, just season with a few drops of lite coconut milk, dried chili flakes and a dash of fresh lime juice 🙂

Serve with fresh coriander, brown rice and stir-fried veggies from formula

Serves 2:  2 Prot, 2 Fat

Spanish Ole King!

Okay, the reason for the name of this dish – it started out as Chicken a La King, and halfway through I realised that I don’t have mushrooms!  LOL!  But fear not!  Managed to create a tasty dinner anyway!  🙂

10 ml olive oil

100g chopped onions

200g chopped green pepper

150 ml chicken stock

400g raw chicken fillets, cut into cubes

Okay that was as far as the Chicken A La King got!

 

Enter:  Ole King!

140g par cooked brown rice

1 tin (400g) Tomato and Onion (Woolies – with Garlic)

3ml Spanish Smoked Paprika

a sprinkling of Garlic Salt

Cayenne pepper to taste

Salt and Pepper to taste

 

Fry onion and green pepper in olive oil, add chicken stock and bring to a simmer.  When onion and green pepper is softer and stock reduced, add chicken cubes and brown.  Add tinned tomatoes and rest of the ingredients.  Simmer for about 20 minute and…. ole!

5ml olive oil

½ teaspoon each – crushed garlic, crushed ginger, finely chopped chilies (or to taste)

1 tsp Woolies Mild curry powder (use Medium if too strong)

100g finely chopped onions

400g chicken fillets, cubed

400g par cooked potato cubes

125ml lite coconut milk (I use fat free milk with coconut essence to save my fat serves ;))

300ml chicken stock

Salt and Pepper

Fresh Coriander to serve

 

Fry spices and onion in olive oil for a few minutes. Add chicken and fry for about 3 minutes. Add rest of ingredients and simmer at a low heat for about 20 minutes (make sure potato is soft). I’m not a fan of soup that’s too chunky, so I took out some of the chicken and liquidized the rest – adding the chicken back to give some texture. Serve with fresh coriander.

Curry and Apple Chicken Wrap

I love a good wrap!  Especially for lunch 🙂

When packing my lunch for work, I very seldom just throw everything together – I am not a fan of mushy, soggy food. Okay, few people are!  😛

Today, for example – I packed the wraps seperately, and the chicken mix, and the salad stuff (lettuce, cucumber strips, and chopped peppadews) also in a seperate divided container.

Yes, maybe a bit of a mission – but worth it, believe me! 🙂

This was the chicken curry (fake Coronation??) mix:

90g cooked chicken, chopped
1 small Granny Smit apple, chopped
2 small salad onions, chopped
30ml low fat mayo
1/2 teaspoon curry powder (mild)
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare this the night before – for the flavours to develop 🙂

Quick and easy!

Served with 2 Weigh-Less Sundried Tomato wraps!  Yummy!  😀

Also works as a salad, in pitas and on whole wheat bread 🙂
