Serves 4
Ingredients
  • 1 cup of uncooked rice
  • 1 cup of silk true coconut milk (4 syns)
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 150g of broccoli slaw (or use grated vegetables)
  • 150g of chicken thigh, chopped into small piece
  • ½ cup of frozen peas
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons of curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce
  • low calorie spray
Instructions
  1. Rinse rice under cold water to remove any excess starch.
  2. Place in a saucepan, along with stock, curry powder and coconut milk, gently bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until stock/milk is almost absorbed, turn off heat but leave covered for about 10 mins to allow steam to continue to cook rice.
  3. Spray a frying pan or wok with some low calorie spray, add the chicken and fry until lightly golden.
  4. Add the onion, garlic, broccoli slaw and red pepper and cook for a further 5-6 mins, until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Add the light soy sauce and frozen peas and then mix in the rice.
  6. Serve and enjoy!! It is great as a side or as a main meal.

NOTE: For those in the UK, you can Kara coconut milk instead of the Silk True Coconut

    Which curry powder should I use?

  • Lydia Hall

    what is broccoli slaw please?

  • slimadmin

    it is just a pre grated slaw mix, that you can buy in bags

  • slimadmin

    you can use any curry powder of your choice. I used a mild one.

    Could I use left over chicken for this recipe? Or are the thighs important?
