Recipe: No-Nonsense Chicken Noodles

chickennoodle.jpg

I am such a big fan of food that does not take long to cook, can be packed up into meal prep containers, and that doesn't 'waste' calories on filings. This meal is so good for that. Every now and again we buy 'low cal noodles', they're made from konjac root and are very low calorie per serving, serving your calories for all the good stuff like the veg and meat of the meal! This is the brand that I use.

Ingredients

  • 500g chicken breast
  • 2 cups of green beans
  • 2.5 cups of snow peas
  • 1 cup celery
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1 green capsicum
  • 200g low calorie noodles (1 packet)
  • Black pepper
  • 1.5 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil (only if using a non-stick pan)

Method

  1. Cut the chicken into strips and place it into a pan on a medium heat to start cooking (with olive oil if it is a non-stick pan)
  2. Thinly slice the onion and pop it into the pan to cook with the chicken, add however much black pepper you like
  3. While the chicken is cooking top and tail the green beans and snow peas, also cut up the capsicum and celery
  4. When the chicken is almost finished cooking put the beans, snow peas, celery, capsicum and sesame oil into the pan
  5. While these are cooking together 'cook' the low calorie noodles according to the instructions on the packet (it usually involves just putting the konjac root noodles into boiling or hot water) and then add them into the pan with all the other ingredients
  6. Once everything is cooked through (vegetables should still be just a little bit crunchy, chicken should be cooked through) serve it out!
