This is a qwik and simple meal to prepare and the chicken is so delicious when combined with the ginger.

Serves: 1

  • 150g chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon salt-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 cup finely chopped red cabbage
  • 1½ cups finely chopped silver beet or spinach
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped toasted almonds
  • ¼ cup low-fat plain yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F). Line a baking dish with baking paper, place chicken breast on it. In a small bowl or cup, combine soy sauce and ginger and spoon half of the mixture over chicken breast. Bake for 10 minutes, baste with remaining mixture and cook for 5 more minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cabbage, silver beet and almonds. In a small bowl, combine yoghurt and mayonnaise. use two-thirds of this mixture to coat slaw.
  3. Cut chicken into thin slices. Serve chicken with rice or quinoa and slaw, garnish with sriracha, if using, and remaining yoghurt mayonnaise.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
