Shredded Chicken and Vegetables
Note: This can be a great low calorie and healthy dish all you have to do is use 5ml oil per person and a non stick pan to cook.You could simply stir fry the vegetables as above,without the chicken.the sesame seed oil gives great flavor to the dish and has a high smoke point ideal for stir frying.
Rice Peas Pilaff:
1 cup long grained rice
2 cups( low sodium) chicken stock(organics)
2 cardomom pods
1 inch cinammon
1 star anise
2 bay/laurel leaves
2 tbs oil
salt as required
1/3 cup frozen peas like organics/watties
2 tsp cumin powder
Heat oil add the whole spices and when they begin emitting an aroma add the washed rice stir for 30 seconds add the peas,chicken stock and cumin powder.Add salt and let it come to a boil.Now reduce the flame and let it cook till done.If you wish you could add a pinch of saffron strands to give color to the rice.
