Alright’ you lovely lot!
I thought I would share another recipe, from mine & Aaron’s vast recipe collection. A few weeks ago we made ‘Sweet & Sour Chicken and Rice’ and it was a big hit. Full of flavour and a much healthier option from your typical take away. Although Pizza Hut is calling my name, I am trying to be food smart and get my ‘healthy head’ on, as in a little over 3 months, It is my 21st and i’m also jetting off to Mexico! Need to get my beach bod ready for then!
- 2 skinless chicken breasts
- 2 peppers (any colour)
- 1 small red chilli
- packet of sweet and sour sauce
- Bachelors savoury rice*
- Fry Light, A cooking oil which is used by people following Slimming World (2 syns) or 1 Calorie per spray.
*Bachelors is the healthiest option for boil-in-a-bag rice, as it isn’t kept in oil, which a-lot of other packet rices tend to be.
You can add/change any of the ingredients used, to make it more suitable for you, or your preferences!
Firstly spray a frying pan with Fry Light (or extra virgin olive oil, we’re not picky in our kitchen). We used 2 sprays to cook our entire meal, and that was plenty.
Then, slice your peppers (whichever colours, we used red and yellow) and red chilli. We cut ours into thin strips. After this, you can either dice your chicken or cut it into strips, whichever floats your boat.
Throw your chicken into the pan on a high heat, cook until white on the inside, or however well done you like yours to be!
Once the chicken is cooked, add your peppers and chilli and ‘toss’ until your vegetables are cooked the way you like them. Personally, we don’t like our veg to be to soggy? we prefer them to still have a-bit or crunch 🙂
Put your rice in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes to cook, then add the sweet and sour sauce to your chicken. Once the rice is done, add it to the pan and mix in.
Voila. We were a little bit naughty and served this with duck spring rolls, but hey..can’t be too good now can you! I’ve always thought, if you cut out every single thing you love, that is bad for you, you’ll crave it more and end up stuffing your face. Everything in moderation. You deserve some treats in life!!
Let me know if you guys have any recipes for me to try or what your favourite thing is to cook!
