Green Thai Chicken Stir-Fry

healthy chicken dinnerThis is a great healthy chicken dinner recipe. It is very quick and easy to prepare – I hope you enjoy it.

 

You can also use pork, beef, raw prawns or just vegetables. In reality what ever you fancy you can use !! 

This is a great budget meal to make to use up left overs.

 

 

Ingredients

A dash of Olive Oil – If using a non-stick pan you do not need to use this.

Chopped Chicken into bite-size pieces (or whatever you have decided to use) 

Chopped Vegetables, also bite-sized – This can include Peppers, Broccoli, Peas, Carrotts, Mange-Tout, Runner Beans, Asparagus, Zuchinni – Really anything you have left over in the fridge.

40g Wholemeal Pasta (This makes it a more rounded meal and helps you to feel fuller). If you do not want to use Pasta, sweet potatoes are a good alternative. Allow 1 medium one per person.

Green Thai Paste – use 1tsp per person, or more if you like it a bit hotter. You can buy this ready made in a jar for ease and conveinence or you could make your own.

 

Green Thai Chicken Stir-FryMethod

1) Cook the Pasta according to instructions. If using Sweet Potato, chop it into bite-size chunks and either boil for 10 minutes, or microwave for 5 mins.

2) If the chicken (or other meat / fish you are using) is raw cook this for around 10 minutes first. Meat like Chicken and Pork you need to make sure is cooked thouroughly before eating, so this is why we cook it first.

3) Add the vegetables you are using to the pan and cook through for a further 5 – 10 minutes. If you like them crunchy (like me) then they will not need long to cook. 

4) When the meat and veg are cooked stir in the Green Thai Paste, cook for a further 2 mins.

5) Stir in the Pasta or Sweet potato, make sure fully mixed in, so they absorb the flavours.

 

Serve and enjoy…
