This recipe is so easy it hurts!! A delicious, wholesome meal that will come to the rescue of any novice in the kitchen.
What do I need?
4 chicken breasts
Olive oil – you’ll only need a drizzle for your pan
3-4 cloves of garlic (I’d go for 4, but it’s whatever you’re in to 😉)
1 chunk of fresh ginger (-thumb size in length)
1 vegetable stock cube
½ head broccoli
1 handful of mushrooms
1 red pepper
1 handful of kale, chopped
Equipment: 1 large frying pan, 2 chopping boards, 2 sharp knives, 1 spatula, 1 large bowl
Go on then, show me just how easy this is?
Chop your garlic cloves and ginger into tiny pieces and add them to the frying pan with your olive oil
Chop the chicken breast and add it to the pan, keep it on a low heat so that it cooks right through, stir every few minutes so that eventually it goes a light golden colour
While the chicken is cooking prepare the vegetables:
Chop the broccoli so that it is in small florets, wash
Remove the centre of the pepper along with the seeds, rinse and chop
Wash the kale and chop it into thin pieces
Chop off the stalks of the mushrooms, wash and chop them into small pieces
When the chicken has turned that light golden colour, you can add all of the chopped vegetables, mix around and allow to cook. All veg should soften slightly, chicken should go more golden brown
While the above is happening, add the couscous to the large boil along with the broken up vegetable stock. Add boiling water from the kettle so that the couscous is covered by ~1cm, give it a good stir and allow the couscous to absorb the water
Add the couscous to your frying pan and mix all together, allow 2 more minutes to cook
