A lean, mean fighting machine. That’s exactly how you’ll feel after you try this cabbage rich, lean chicken infused dish. That’s dinner sorted. Only 98 problems to go. Chicken is a great source of protein – building block of skin, muscle, nails and hair. Kale is rich in Vitamins A, C, K and has more iron than the equivalent weight in steak. Bok-choy is packed with antioxidants and regarded as one of the world’s healthiest foods.
Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
To a large bowl, add 1tbsp fish sauce, 1.5tsp soy sauce, 2tsp corn starch and whisk.
Mix in 2 finely chopped garlic cloves and 3 skinless chicken breasts sliced into bite size pieces. Let that marinate.
In a large non-stick pan set over medium-high heat, add 1tsp coconut oil. After 1 min, add 1 red onion thinly sliced and 2 red chillies sliced crosswise. Cook until onion edges brown.
Add 1cup thinly sliced bok-choy stems (we’ll need the green parts later), cook for 1 min, then add the marinated chicken and 1cup of chopped curly kale. Stir until chicken nearly cooked (6 mins).
Stir in the bok-choy greens, 1.25cup of basil leaves and juice of 1 lime. Once greens wilt…
Transfer to 2 plates, sprinkle with basil leaves, 0.5cup of roughly chopped cashews and serve.
