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.
Sounds lovely. Think I will give it a go. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy it 🙂Delete

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.Delete
That sounds delicious. Love the seeds in it too.ReplyDelete
I love toasted pumpkin seeds.Delete
Sounds very good, I think I'll try it soon, I'm out of cooking ideas and I'm always happy for something new.ReplyDelete
I am always experimenting but not always successfullyDelete
Jaundiced chicken - now that has a certain ring to it...ReplyDelete
