Sizzling Chicken Strips
Ok, so another favourite from me tonight... allow me to introduce you to sizzling chicken strips! This has been one of my favourite dinners since my mum started making it when I was a kid.
And the best bit? It couldn't be easier - we love those types of meals!
400g chicken breast or turkey, cut into bitesized strips
3 carrots, peeled and julienned
1 onion, sliced - or 4 spring onions, cut into little coins
1 pepper, sliced
200g mushrooms, sliced
1 tsp chinese five spice
2 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or ziplock bag. Leave to marinade for as long as possible - 2-3 hours is fine, overnight is better.
When ready to cook, heat a big frying pan and add another tbsp of toasted sesame oil. Stir fry.
Serve with basmati rice* and/or flatbreads
*I serve 60g dried weight rice per portion.
As with most meals, if you don't have an ingredient, you can swap and/or omit the offending item. A handful of cashew nuts is quite a nice addition!
