This is one of my absolute top post workout dinners. High protein (of courrrrrse!) healthy fats and nutritious carbs. Plus 100x more delicious than a standard stir fry. Not to mention seriously little effort and super quick. Doesn’t photograph that well, but trust me, it’s a must try!
Serves 2 – adapted from Nigel Slater’s EAT.
+ 400g diced chicken breast
+ 3 tsp five spice powder or paste
+ 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
+ 75g salted cashew nuts
+ 200ml boiling water
+ 200g tenderstem broccoli
Put the chicken in a bowl with the five spice and garlic, mixing well.
Heat a frying pan with a little oil on high and add the chicken mix. Fry for 2 mins, then throw in the cashews.
Add the broccoli to the pan, along with the boiling water. Cover the pan (in my high-tech kitchen I favour tin foil) and leave to steam for about 3 mins. Check the chicken has cooked through here, as depending on the chunk size, some pieces may need a little more time.
Serve, with cooking juices dished over and a little soy sauce.
