If you have some chicken in your fridge, then you have a huge range of healthy and tasty options for meals you can make. This article will list 20, each of which is tasty, quick and a healthy(ish) source of lean protein.
1. Mexican Chicken
Mexican chicken isn’t necessarily really from Mexico, but it is a fun recipe that makes great finger food, that is easy to make and that is spicy and healthy.
First, you will be making breaded chicken pieces. To do this, you will need a plate of breadcrumbs and you’ll need a bowl of egg – simply crack one whole egg into the bowl.
Now you’re going to dip each piece of chicken into the raw egg and then roll it in the breadcrumbs so that they stick to it and cover it. Try not to think about the fact that chickens lay eggs and that this is essentially rolling them in their unborn children…
Once you’ve done this, squeeze the juice from a whole lemon onto the chicken pieces and then place them in a preheated oven at 200C. You’ll be leaving them in here for 30 minutes.
While that takes care of itself, meanwhile you will want to prepare the fruit chutney. You can play around with this recipe, but the basic ingredients are red pepper (thinly sliced), raisins, apple pieces, red onion, a little olive oil and half a can of chopped tomatoes. Fry this up and add a little chilli powder and then on top of that, you can add a small spoon of honey to sweaten it.
Once that’s all done, serve both the chicken and the chutney on a plate with a small (optional) dollop of mayonnaise.
