Saturday Supper

This week we bought a pack of 3 chicken fillets as part of a 3 for £10 deal in the supermarket, along with a pack of pork loin and something else which I can't remember now!

Saturday evening I decided to cook it as a sort of curry-cum-risotto, which I made up as I went along, as usual.

In the pan I put about a tablespoon of olive oil, added chilli flakes, garlic, black pepper, turmeric, garam masala and cumin and gently heated. I added sliced peppers, chopped celery and courgette and the diced chicken fillets until coated and slightly browned. I then added some toasted mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, chia and flax), some sliced mushrooms and rice, with enough hot water to cover.  At the end I added some of the spiced quinoa & bean mix that I bought from the supermarket - frozen and reheated for 2 minutes in the microwave.

This was then covered and simmered for a little while, until everything was cooked through.

There is enough left over to make another meal, so quite good value.

It was quite good.  P has decided to call it my jaundiced chicken, due to the colour imparted from the turmeric.

    1. Now there's an idea. You have a great business brain YP. Although I don't think that book would do quite as well as your offspring's.
