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

Overnight Oats with Banana and Peanut Butter

Another firm favourite – overnight oats 🙂 Haven’t tried it before? It is easy, convenient and delicious.

The basics are pretty straight-forward – raw oats with yogurt or milk, left overnight in the fridge – ready for breakfast!  No cooking required! 🙂

You can add fruit, nuts, berries, honey and spices as well – very versatile indeed!  🙂  I will post more ideas at a later stage!

I usually layer the ingredients in a container (looks lovely in glass bottles) – raw oats first, then milk/yogurt, then fruit/nuts, etc.

With this one I usually mix it all together, but must admit, it doesn’t look very appetizing!  So I tried it this way:

Serves 2

40g raw oats
350ml plain fat free yogurt
140g banana
10ml peanut butter (no sugar variety)
5g (1 tsp) cocoa powder
2 sachets artificial sweetener (if needed – the cocoa powder can be quite bitter).  You can use honey as well, if  you prefer a more natural sweetener.

Layer in 2 glass containers:

  • 20g raw oats in each container
  • Mash bananas and divide between the two containers
  • Whipped peanut butter, cocoa powder and sweetener together and layer on top

Leave in fridge overnight and have for breakfast the next morning!  Easy peasy 🙂
