Hello – yep, I’ve been away for a bit. But I’m back (and around 9lbs lighter since I last put on a post so I must still be doing something right!!!). I wont bore you with my reasons for being away, I’ll just crack on with another stupidly easy meal idea!
Creamy ‘chicken’ tomato & Chilli Onepot
This serves two people as a main meal and is very quick to make, less than 18 mins and there’s even a cheat taking it down to 13 ….
6 Quorn fillets
125g Sainsburys Soft Cheese, Light in Garlic and Herb flavour
60g Whole milk
30g Sainsburys Italian Tomato and Chilli paste (comes in a tube)
Veg to act as a pasta substitute, either courgette or green beans cut in ribbons, pepper slices – whatever veg you prefer.
Lots of salt and pepper for seasoning
Tiny bit of rapeseed oil
Big green salad on the side
Defrost the Quorn fillets in your microwave (or take out and pop in fridge the night before) and then chop into whatever shaped chunks you fancy. Me, I’m a diagonal strips kinda gal. Pop them into a heavy based saucepan and drizzle with the oil. On a mid heat, start to cook until the edges turn golden. Then, bung in your veg***.
Right away, add everything else – the milk, cheese, paste and seasoning and give a good stir. Pop on the lid, turn down the heat a little and stir every few minutes so it doesn’t stick. Keep on the heat until the veg is cooked but still firm to the bite to keep the goodness.
Serve. Eat. Burp.
***If you are super pushed for time then just microwave the veg with a splash of water and add in at the end, saving around 8 mins, just think what you could do with that eh?!!).
Oh and I thought I should start adding the nutritional values…
