What’s better than great food that’s alliterated AND healthy?
Great food that’s alliterated, healthy and takes under 3 minutes to prep.
Ok, you get the point.
Also, warm baked chicken is to gloomy days, what rain is to a happy umbrella. I’m not entirely sure whether that’s the right analogy but who cares when you’ve got warm baked chicken waiting for your love.
Boneless chicken – 200 gms.
Bread crumbs – 1 cup
Flour – 3 tbsp.
Cheddar – 3-4 tbsp. (grated)
Garlic chives – 2 tbsp. (finely chopped)
Olive oil – 2 tsp.
Garlic powder – 2 tsp.
Preheat oven to 180˚C. Rub oil and seasoning over chicken. Combine the rest of the ingredients. Dunk chicken in them till evenly coated and pop it in the oven. Wait for the seemingly endless 30 minutes of your life. Once the crust is golden-brown and crunchy, test the chicken with a skewer. Juices should run clear on piercing. Bring out the cooked chicken and give it lots of love!
Use this recipe to whack someone who says, “Healthy food never tastes good” or “Delicious food can never be healthy”.
The high achieved out of creating something yum out of the seasonal favourite in under 5 minutes is supreme. What’s more, your calorie meter will be dancing with joy even after you scoff down 4-5 helpings of this at one go.
I dislike eating fruits (sounds ridiculous but it’s true) but still found myself surreptitiously adding more strawberry to my portion.
So if you’re the “Ew! Fruits!” type, then be prepared to get converted.
Also, the parfait looks like Christmas in a cup! Now who in their right mind would not like to have that?!
INGREDIENTS: (for 4 servings)
Yoghurt (low-fat) : 2 cups
Fresh strawberries (chopped): 2 cup
Brown sugar: 2 tablespoons
Lemon juice: 1 tsp.
Digestive/ Diet cookies (crumbled): 2 cups
Low fat butter: 2 tbsps.
Toasted almond flakes: For garnishing
To create strawberry compote, put strawberries in a hot pan, sprinkle the sugar and drizzle lemon juice. Heat till the strawberries will start releasing juices and the mixture is sticky and bubbly.
Bash the cookies to crumbles and pour melted butter over it. Mix thoroughly.
Take a jar or a nice-looking glass container and start layering the elements. There is no rule as to what goes first so you can decide the order and number of the layers. I was out of toasted almond flakes but I usually sprinkle some as garnish and for a crunch.
