Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 lean Chicken fillets.
  • 1/2 a red, green and yellow pepper.
  • 1/2 a large sweet spanish onion.
  • 1/2 a punnet of button mushrooms.
  • 20 mangetout.
  • 1 Tube of tomato Puree.
  • 350mlsmls of Diet/Zero Orange.
  • 1 tbsp of White wine/malt vinegar.
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic.
  • 1 tsp of cayenne pepper.
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 100mls of just boiled water.
  • Low calorie cooking spray.

Method

  1. In a heavy based frying pan or wok ( I find the sauce reduces better/quicker in a pan rather than a saucepan), place the tomato puree, diet orange, chicken stock cube, cayenne pepper, vinegar and water.
  2. Leave to reduced for 10/15 minutes on a high heat.
  3. Place the sauce in a bowl and leave aside.
  4. Wash the pan, place back on the heat and spray with low cal spray. Add the Chicken and fry until golden.
  5. Add the prepped veg to the pan and stir fry for 1 minute.
  6. Add the sauce into the veg and chicken, along with the crushed garlic and leave to simmer for 10 minutes on a medium heat.
  7. I serve this with Steamed broccoli, Chips made in my Tefal Actifry and egg fried cauliflower rice, for which I grate raw cauliflower, add to a pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray, 1 tbsp of water and fry for 1 minute. I add 1 egg which I scramble in a separate pan and fry for a further 2 minutes on a medium heat.

Enjoy!
