I'll be starting a new series on the nutrition blog called #waitrosewednesday where I will be trying to recreate a recipe from my collection of waitrose recipe cards that I have acquired over the last year.
I'll be adding my own twist on each recipe though to give it a healthier spin and kick start a healthier attitude to 2020!
The first recipe I have chosen to do is this aromatic chicken and rice recipe that is great to meal prep for a whole bunch of tasty lunches for a busy working week.
1 Lemon grass stalk
2 garlic cloves
25g Grated ginger root
10 TBS Reduced salt soy sauce
8 Chicken drumstick fillets
10g Salted Butter
150g Frozen green beans
4 carrots sliced
Cut up the chicken into small chunks and set aside in a bowl
Add chopped lemongrass, ginger, garlic cloves and soy sauce and mix in well.
Leave for 1 hour in the fridge to marinate
After 1 hour take the chicken out of the fridge and heat some butter in a pan
Chop up carrots into slices and add these into the hot pan along with the chicken and frozen green beans
Whilst the chicken is cooking boil some brown rice in a pan and add some lime juice to the boiling water
Add the lime round in with the chicken and stir around to disperse the flavour
Leave the chicken to cook for 12- 14 minutes until it is fully cooked though
Drain the rice and serve up ins bowl with the chicken
