This healthy bowl is packed full of goodness with wholegrains, lean protein and veggies. The hoisin and soy sauce make a perfect glaze for the chicken breast and the roasted peanuts add a lovely crunch. It’s also quick and easy to make - the perfect lunchtime fix.
SUGGESTED VEGAN SWAP To make this a vegan protein bowl, swap the chicken for 400g firm tofu. Marinate with 2 tbsp hoisin sauce, 1 tbsp dark soy sauce and 1/2 tbsp sesame oil. Griddle (or BBQ) over medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes, until golden.
NUTRITION NOTES - Chicken is packed full of lean protein, combined with the protein in the nuts, this dish will keep you feeling fuller for longer so you’re less likely to snack on unhealthy foods. The wholegrain rice - with its bran, husk and germ intact - is also packed full of nutritional goodness. Eating wholegrains is linked to reduced rates of heart disease and stroke and helps to maintain normal blood pressure. There’s a good supply of veggies in this dish too; the crunchy peppers and scorched broccoli add great texture and good amounts of antioxidant vitamins, especially vitamin C.
