Both of these recipes are from the Lean In 15 Book again. First up was this little beauty. Japanese Chicken Skewers. I think this is probably my second favourite (after the Mighty Duck Noodles). It was so light and fresh and tasty – I loved it.
The chicken was marinaded in soy sauce, honey and ginger (should have garlic too) and then grilled. The salad is made up of baby spinach, cucumber and radishes with a dressing of white wine vinegar and toasted sesame oil. Then a sprinkle of sesame seeds to finish.
Bloody gorgeous and dead quick to make. A real winner.
And then this evening we had Joe’s Oaty Chicken. The chicken was bashed out flat so it would cook quickly and then coated in flour, egg and a mix of ground almonds, oats & paprika. While that was frying in coconut oil I made the salsa which is cucmber, tomato & avocado with a dressing of olive oil and apple cider vinegar (should have been lemon juice but I didn’t have any).
Both of these recipes have been better-sized portions so haven’t felt like a chore to eat. Mark said this one was his favourite of all the Lean In 15 recipes we tried. (I think he forgot the Duck noodles….).
I’ve been really impressed with both books – so many different recipes that are all easy to make and with normal ingredients most of the time. Really worth the price – I’d recommend them.
Just one more recipe to go…..
