My husband used to work in the City and was used to having some lovely places to visit at lunchtime. He’s also done a fair bit of travelling with work and there are a few recipes that he’s tried that we’ve introduced into our mealtimes and this is one of those recipes. It was simple, didn’t take very long and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Ingredients for 1 serving
|277g||chicken breast, chopped into chunks|
|46g||spring onion, finely chopped|
|1||chilli, sliced, seeds or no seeds up to you!|
|1||chicken stock cube|
|76g||dried rice noodles|
(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)
- Put a small frying pan on a medium heat, add the coconut oil and the chicken chicken.
- Sprinkle the chicken with a little salt to help colour and cover the pan to cook.
- Put the dried mushrooms in a bowl and add 75ml of boiling water to rehydrate them.
- Next put a saucepan on a heat with boiling water and cook the noodles to the manufacturers instructions.
- When cooked, use tongs to remove the noodles from the water and set aside in a colander and give them a splash with cold water to stop them from over cooking.
- Using the same water, cook the broccoli to your liking, drain and set aside.
- Check the chicken and turn it over to colour the other side.
- Add 75ml of boiling water to a small saucepan, put it on a medium heat and add the stock cube and the rehydrated mushrooms along with the mushroom liquid.
- Check that the chicken is cooked and set it aside, but pour the chicken juices into your stock for added flavour!
- Turn the heat down and let it simmer for a couple of minutes before adding the chopped chilli at the end.
- Start to plate up by adding the noodles, then the broccoli, spring onion and the chicken.
- Pour over the mushroom stock, there should be enough to almost cover the food.
- Add a dash of soy sauce and dig in!
- For a more intense flavour I’ve used dried mushrooms but half of the amount I would normally use as they will increase in size after rehydrating.
- I like to use low salt stock cubes.
