(To serve two)
- 50g peanut butter (no hydrogenated fats!)
- 3-5g extra virgin olive oil
- Cayenne pepper
- Mild chilli powder
- Boiling water
- 1/2 a red bell pepper (inch slices)
- 1/2 an orange bell pepper (inch slices)
- Small white onion (diced)
- Small red onion (diced)
- Bag of stir fry vegetables
- 2 medium chicken breasts (turkey can also be used)
Butterfly the chicken breast and placed in foreman
Alternatively slice and dice chicken, and fry in a wok on a moderate/high heat until sealed
Prepare and chop vegetables
Place the peanut butter, olive oil and seasoning in a mug, and add 15-20ml of boiling water. Stir well until mixture is one (adding more water if necessary)
Remove chicken when cooked through (not charred) and cut into pieces
Drain any excess water from the chicken and add the pepper and onion – reducing to a moderate heat and frequently pushing the chicken and veg around the pan.
Place chicken and vegetables in a wok on moderate heat for 2-3mins, before adding the stir fry veg for another 2-3 minutes.
Add the sauce and chicken and then stir through till mixture is evenly spread after 1-2mins
Turn heat right down and let the mixture warm for 2-3mins
Add carbs if you wish (I used rice noodles as you can just stir them in) and enjoy your meal!
