Firecracker Chicken

It’s a dish that I can’t stop myself from ordering every time I go to Wagamama.  As you can see from the video, there are loads of ingredients for the marinade, but it’s this combination of sweet and spicy flavours (with a hint of sourness from the tamarind and vinegar) […]

Nandos-style Peri Peri Chicken

Yes you could just use a Nandos rub.  But it’s much more fun to make your own. I haven’t worked out the macros for this dish as it varies with whichever part of the chicken you eat.  However, all of the recipes in my books have full macros (calories, protein, […]

Super-High Protein Butter Chicken

My version of the Indian classic Butter Chicken is a high protein dream.  Combine chicken breasts, Greek yoghurt and nut butter and you get a whopping 52g of protein a portion! AND my version actually has butter in it (not a lot, but enough..) whereas many healthier versions call themselves […]

Chicken Jambalaya

This is a super-easy one-pan meal, which means that there is no need to spend ages washing up afterwards.  It is ideal to make if you are meal-prepping as it will keep for a couple of days in the fridge. Macros (per portion, excluding greek yoghurt) 387 calories | 24g […]

Thai Green Curry

Here is a very simple Thai dish you can make at home.  If you are trying to impress, by all means add in fresh lemongrass and Kaffir lime leaves too, but these are crazily expensive for a weekday dinner so I left them out of the video. A few tips: […]

Healthier Sweet & Sour Chicken

Like Crispy Chilli Beef, Sweet & Sour Chicken is a Chinese takeaway classic.  Here is a healthier version, without the oily batter and without the MSG.  This recipe is plenty for two people when served with rice – it doesn’t keep well so you are best to eat it straight […]

Easy Pad Thai

I love a good Pad Thai.  But in the past when I’ve looked up recipes for it, I’ve been put off by the need for exotic ingredients, such as salted radish and palm sugar.  Speaking of sugar, I was also a bit scared to find out just how much of the sweet stuff […]

Chicken Tikka Masala

Low Fat Chicken Tikka Masala

Let’s face it, Chicken Tikka Masala is not supposed to be low fat.  Whenever I’ve bought a ‘healthy’ ready meal version, it has always been tasteless.  It is supposed to have lots of ghee and cream in it. Having said that, I’m really pleased with this recipe!  I’ve replaced the […]
