Healthy food doesn't all have to be prepared from scratch. I have found a number of ready-prepared dishes that regularly feature on the menu. Today is a Tesco Healthy Living Citrus blackened Cajun chicken breast fillet - only 25 minutes to cook (remove lid from foil dish, pop into pre-heated oven for 25 minutes...) It's pretty decent quality chicken, and only 171 calories.
Now before anyone gets too concerned that I am eating food outside of it's best before date... the other great thing about these little beauties is that they can be frozen!
I've enjoyed this chicken with salad and other vegetables, but today I prepared a fine green bean and garlic salad (55 calories per serving) , and roasted celeriac (60 calories). This provided a great tasting and filling meal for just 286 calories.
Here's the recipe for the green bean salad.
Green bean and garlic salad = 55 calories per serving
270g fine green beans
Roasted celeriac = 79 calories per serving
Recipe makes 4 servings
Virgin Coconut one calorie spray oil
Peel the celeriac and cut into 1.5cm cubes. Spread over a baking tray. Spray with the spray oil.
Cook for 35 - 45 minutes in a pre-heated oven (200 degrees), stirring half way through so that the cubes are evenly browned.
Great with fish and can be used to replace potatoes!
