The cats love this weather, we hardly see them, they are obviously out doing whatever cats do when it’s warm and sunny. I love it too, so tonight’s dinner was another speedy one so I could get back out in it.
This is a Jamie Oliver recipe that I have modified.
What you need:
2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 or 2 medium red chillies (depending how hot you want it), also take the seeds out if you don’t want it too hot
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled
A handful of fresh coriander
Grated rind of 1 lime, then squeeze in the juice of the lime (you can also use lemon if you don’t have any limes)
A generous splash of tamari soy sauce, coconut aminos or Vietnamese fish sauce.
How to make it:
Put all the ingredients, except the chicken and coconut oil, in your food processor and blend until you get a sauce.
Heat the coconut oil in a pan, then add the chicken and stir fry for about 5 minutes.
Add the satay sauce and stir fry for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. The sauce will also reduce slightly.
Today we had this with stir-fried pak choi, broccoli, mushroom, onion and courgette (yep, we eat a LOT of vegetables!). I cooked the vegetables in olive oil and a little home made vegetable stock and sprinkled them with freshly ground black pepper. Very tasty!
p.s. Apologies for the seriously boring post today, I’m sure none of you give a sh*t about my cats or what they do. But it’s late and I’m tired. Plus I ripped my hand doing pullups today so I’m also a bit p*ssed off. I think I’ll just go to bed now.
