Ingredients


For the chicken:

✓ 5 tbsp. Peanut Butter

✓ 50ml orange juice

✓ 3 tbsp. Sugar-Free Syrup (Maple Flavour)

✓ 3 tbsp. soy sauce

✓ 1 thumb ginger (grated)

✓ 3 chicken breasts

 

For the salad:

✓ 2 cucumbers (spiralised or thinly sliced)

✓ 2 carrots (spiralised or thinly sliced)

 

Salad dressing:

✓ 2 tbsp. Sugar-Free Syrup (Maple Flavour)

✓ 4 tbsp. soy sauce

✓ 2 tbsp. sesame oil (if you don’t have this, substitute for your preferred oil or go without to reduce fat content)

 

Serve with:

30g (dry weight) brown/basmati rice per meal


Method


#1 Preheat the oven to 200°C or 180°C for fan-assisted

#2 Whisk peanut butter, 100ml hot water and orange juice together until smooth then add the syrup, soy sauce and ginger. Set aside

#3 Season and sear the chicken breasts by frying on a high heat using a non-stick pan for 3 minutes on each side, then transfer to a casserole dish and thoroughly coat the chicken with the peanut butter sauce

#4 Bake for 20 minutes

#5 Whilst waiting, make the salad dressing by whisking the syrup, soy, sesame oil and seeds together, then combine with the spiralised cucumber and carrots

#6 Once the chicken is cooked, place into meal prep boxes and serve with the salad and brown rice. Three days lunch prep sorted!
