Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g chicken breast, cut into thin strips
95 g babycorn, cut in half
52 g peppers, sliced
24 g nut butter
6 g coconut oil
2-3 tbsp water
1 tbsp mild curry powder
43 ml soy sauce
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
149 g cauliflower, pre cooked, boiled or steamed
salt and pepper


  • Put the chicken slices into a bowl with the crushed garlic, soy sauce and leave to marinate for 5 minutes.
  • Put a frying pan onto the heat and add the coconut oil.
  • When the oil is hot add the chicken and any left over marinade and stir fry for a few minutes.
  • Add the babycorn and peppers along with the curry powder and stir fry for a minute and allow them to soften.
  • At this point the chicken should be almost cooked.
  • To a bowl add the nut butter and water mix them together to create a loose sauce.
  • It may look a little bitty at this stage but it will come together in the pan.
  • Add the steamed cauliflower florets to the pan to warm through and add the nut butter mixture.
  • Coat all the ingredients with the nut butter and any residual water will evaporate.
  • Hey presto it’s ready!
