One of my New Years resolutions was to eat healthy as I don’t feel I have a great diet. So far I’ve been doing really well and can notice a difference in myself. My skin is looking better, I feel good and also my jeans are slowly but surely becoming looser.
Last week when I was scrolling through Facebook I came across a slimming world recipe for Salt and Chilli chicken. I’m not a member of slimming world but I just thought I’d give it a go. I did switch up the receipt a little bit so it was more to my liking but it turned out really delicious and I’ll definitely be making it again.
3 chicken breasts
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 green pepper
1 tsp Garlic powder
1tsp sea salt
1 sachet of dry smash
Light soya sauce
To get started I preheated the oven to 180c using a large tray and some tin foil I placed the tin foil on the tray with a tiny amount of olive oil rubbed over the top to prevent the food sticking to it. I then chopped up the chicken into small pieces and began to coat them.
For the coating pour the smash potato mix into a dish and add 1 tsp of salt then mix together (as you can see in the picture above there is chicken oxo which normally would be crumbed in at this point with the smash and salt I just decided not to use it but it’s entirely up to you) Beat 2 eggs into a bowl and take your strips of chicken dip them in the bowl of beaten eggs, before rolling it in the smash dry potato mixture. Repeat this until all the chicken is coated.
While the chicken is cooking chop up a sweet potato into little strips and place on a tray into the oven and cook for about 20mins.
Using a wok add a small amount of olive oil and stir fry your chopped pepper , onion , chilli and garlic add a splash or 2 of light soya sauce and mix together. I did this on a low heat when cooking mine.
When the chicken is cooked through, add it to the wok with your vegetables and mix it all together. Then serve it up with your sweet potatoes and there you have it the perfect healthy, tasty “fakeaway” dinner!!!
You could also serve it with noodles or rice or even chips. I just used a sweet potato but you can use whatever takes your fancy.
Hope you all enjoyed this and if you use this recipe or have any tips for me please leave them down in the comments.
