Ingredients (Generously Serves 1)
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
3 spring onions
1/2 red pepper, de-seeded and finely diced
1/2 courgette, diced
1 x 240g skinless chicken, cut into 1cm thick slices
2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 cup feta, crumbled
small bunch of parsley leaves only, roughly chopped (optional)
squeeze of lemon juice
1.Start by cooking the quinoa (1 part quinoa:1.5 parts water), bring to boil & simmer for 20 mins, or until water is absorbed.
2.Whilst the quinoa is simmering, put the coconut oil in a wok or large frying pan over a medium to high heat. Add the spring onions, red pepper and courgette and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes or until the vegetables are just starting to soften.
3.Increase the heat to high and add the chicken, along with the paprika and a little salt and pepper. Fry for a further 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked. Check by slicing into one of the larger peices to make sure the meat is white all the way through, with no raw pink bits left.
4.Stir in the quinoa and fry for a minute or so.
5.Serve your chicken and quinoa stir-fry topped with crumbled feta, chopped parsely (optional) and a squeeze of lemon.
