Benefits for your body

  • Chicken is a great source of protein, not only does it contain all 9 essential amino acids to help improve your muscle tone, this source of protein will help sustain your appetite, meaning you’ll feel full on fewer calories.
  • The peppers contain lots of vitamins and anti-oxidants  to help lower your risk of cancer.
  • The sugar snap peas and mange tout contain vitamin C to help build and strengthen collagen.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time:
20-25 minutes (you can reduce the cooking time if you use a rice cooker)

Serves two

Ingredients

1 dessertspoon of coconut oil
2 boneless chicken breasts, sliced OR used left over roast chicken, cut into chunks
½ large red pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
½ large yellow pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
1 x 400ml can of coconut milk
250ml of cold water
1 tablespoon of Thai Green Curry Paste
Juice from one lime
2 teaspoons of Thai fish sauce (or nam pla)
1 teaspoon of coconut sugar OR honey
100g of sugar snap peas OR mange tout (trimmed)
1 tablespoon of cornflour
handful of fresh coriander, chopped or roughly torn
handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped or roughly torn

To serve
1/3 cup (or 75g) of  uncooked brown basmati rice per person

How to make

  1. Place the brown basmati rice in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil gently over a moderate heat. Reduce the heat and simmer according to the time on the pack (usually 25 minutes).
  2. Place the coconut oil in a large non-stick saucepan, frying pan or wok and heat until it melts
  3. Stir fry the chicken and pepper strips for about 2 minutes, then pour in the coconut milk plus 250ml of water, the curry paste, lime juice, fish sauce and coconut sugar or honey.
  4. Slowly bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Stir regularly throughout the cooking time.
  5. Add the sugar snap peas or mange tout and continue to simmer.
  6. Mix the cornflour with 1 tablespoon of water in a cup and then add to the pan.
  7. Cook for another 3 minutes, stirring continuously so the vegetables have softened (but are not too soft) and the liquid has thickened.
  8. Remove from the heat, and add the chopped herbs. Serve on top of a cupped hand size of brown basmati rice per person.Baby Weaning Idea: 
    One of my favourite things to do is to take a chicken breast and chop it into small pieces.
    Make sure the cooked meat is COLD and is in no bigger than 1-2 inch chunks when you puree.
    Blend up the meat first until it’s almost like a clumpy powder then add water as this will be your baby’s first experience with meat. You can also combine a vegetable with the water as well. Experiment with the vegetable because all babies have different tolerances and preferences for tastes and textures. Examples are: broccoli, carrots, peas.

    Toddler Idea:
    Chopped chicken makes a great finger food. Make sure the cooked meat is COLD and cut 1 cm chunks.
