Ingredients (Serves 2)

It’s such a great feeling knowing lunch is pre-prepared….today is leftovers from last night’s dinner – perfect! Again, I’ve included the recipe just in case you’ve missed it. 

  • 1 tsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
  • 1 pepper, chopped
  • 1 courgette
  • 2 organic, free range chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 10 closed cup mushrooms
  • 75g mange tout
  • 1 spring onion, chopped into 2cm slices
  • 100g red cabbage
  • 50g green beans
  • 3 tbsp. tamari
  • 2 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce

Method

  • Optional first step is to marinate the chicken breasts in extra tamari and sweet chilli sauce.
  • Start by melting the Lucy Bee Coconut Oil on a low to medium heat and adding the pepper. The longer it cooks on a low heat, the softer it will be. While the pepper is cooking, spiralise the courgette.
  • Once the pepper begins to soften, add in the chicken breast. After 2-3 minutes, add the mushrooms, mange tout, spring onion, red cabbage and green beans and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Once the ingredients are cooked to your preference, add in the tamari and sweet chilli, stirring it in well.
  • You may find you want to add more sauce.
  • Take off the heat and add it on top of the courgetti in a bowl.
