There is a big focus on Lean Meat this month. We have come up with a quick and easy recipe for you to follow. The ingredients in this recipe are all health conscious and will boost your immune system too. In this recipe we have used Harry's Chicken Breasts which can be found in the Lean Detox Box.
3 sticks of lemongrass
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
1-2 red chillies
½ a bunch of fresh coriander
1 bunch of spring onions
2 free-range chicken breasts
1.75 litres light organic chicken or veg stock
1 large handful of beansprouts
1. Peel and finely dice the shallots, then remove the outer leaves from the lemongrass and finely chop the remainder. Peel and finely grate the ginger and garlic, and finely slice the chilli. Pick the coriander leaves, then trim and shred the spring onions and set aside. Next, cut the chicken into finger-width strips.
2. Gently sweat the shallots in a splash of oil until soft. Throw in the lemongrass, ginger and garlic, and fry for 1 minute. Add the stock and most of the chilli. Add the chicken and simmer for about 8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Add a splash of fish sauce and squeeze in the lime juice.
3. Taste and add more fish sauce, lime juice or chilli as needed. At the last minute, add the coriander, beansprouts and spring onions, then divide between bowls.
