Healthy Midweek Stir-fry

CHICKEN, GINGER AND PINEAPPLE STIR-FRY

You can’t beat a simple stir-fry midweek and this is full of flavour and goodness.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

2tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil

4 small chicken breasts, cut into strips

2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed

1 small ripe pineapple, peeled and cut into 2-3cm (about 1in) pieces

25g (1oz) root ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

250g punnet of cherry tomatoes, halved

200g (7oz) beansprouts

1 bunch of spring onions, sliced into 3-4cm (1¼-1½in) pieces

2tbsp oyster sauce

2tbsp caster sugar

75ml (2½fl oz) chicken stock

Small bunch of coriander, roughly chopped

Cooked wholewheat noodles tossed in a little sesame oil or Thai rice, to serve

METHOD

Heat a wok over a high heat and add 1tbsp of the oil. Season the chicken with a little salt and pepper and stir-fry with the garlic for 3-4 minutes until it has browned. Remove from the wok and keep warm.

Add the remaining 1tbsp of oil to the wok and add the pineapple, ginger, tomatoes, beansprouts, spring onions, oyster sauce and sugar. Stir fry for about 1 minute before adding the stock.

Providing you still have the wok over a high heat, it should instantly come to the boil.

Cook for about 3 minutes until the sauce is becoming thick and sticky. Return the chicken to the pan along with the coriander.

Toss to combine and serve with the noodles or rice.

PS…

Strips of pork or raw tiger prawns can be used instead of the chicken, simply cook as above.
