Warm Chicken and Vegetable Salad

This is a concoction I made last night as ‘diet food’ for you know who… it appears he has been inspired to embark on a health kick and has requested a change in his meals.
That's no problem for me as it means lovely fresh, nutritious, vegetable rich meals.

The idea partially came from a video on YouTube called ‘6 minute meals’. This takes more than 6 minutes, but is still super quick, and a whole lot yummier!

You will need
2 chicken breasts, sliced
1 Tbsp tandoori spice mix
1 ½ cups green beans (I used frozen)
1 cup frozen corn
1 medium head of broccoli, chopped into bit-size pieces,
1 cup sweet potato, diced
1 carrot, grated
1 spring onion, chopped
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 chilli, finely chopped
2 Tbsp chopped basil

Put the chicken in a fry pan with a little oil and mix through the spice mix, put this on a very low heat while you prepare the veggies.

In a large, microwave safe bowl, put the beans and corn in the microwave for a minute or 2.
Add the broccoli, mix a little, and microwave for another minute or so, until the broccoli is just cooked.
In a separate bowl, microwave or steam the sweet potato until tender, then add it to the rest of the veggies.
Add the carrot, spring onion, lemon juice, chilli and basil.

When the veggies are about done, turn the heat up and fry the chicken until it is golden on each side. Tip the chicken into the veggie mix, cut or shred the chicken up a little more so it is bite-sized and manageable.

Combine well, serve and enjoy…

These quantities should satisfy two hungry adults
