As I have been smashing the gym recently, I have forever been seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. I have forced myself to the gym in the morning before work, meaning I can get home, cook and actually relax in an evening. However I don’t want to use all that time I’ve freed up cooking. I love cooking but so love relaxing too. When I get Thai or Chinese I love having chicken with cashews, so thought I could probably make something pretty similar at home and went for a garlic cashew chicken. It was so simple yet so tasty it’s definately making my weekly meal list! 

Garlic Cashew Chicken Ingredients

– 125g diced chicken

– A handful of cashews

– 4 tbsp of garlic oil

– Broccoli

– Courgette

– Peas

– 1 tbsp of garlic puree

– Tilda wild and brown basmati rice

– A sprinkle of chili flakes

Garlic Cashew Chicken Method

– Begin to steam your veggies.

– Place half the oil into the pan and lightly dry the chicken.

– Once the veggies are done toss them with the chicken.

– Add in the chill flakes, cashews and spring onion.

– Mix in the garlic puree.

– Take off the heat and mix with the rest of the oil.

– Sprinkle on some extra cashews and serve with rice.

Where do you get your meal ideas from?
