Thai chicken & grains with pineapple


1 tbsp essential Waitrose Sunflower or Vegetable Oil
150g frozen essential Waitrose Extra Fine Whole Green Beans, ends trimmed
1 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced 300g pack Waitrose Chicken Breast Chunks In An Aromatic Green Thai Marinade
½ small essential Waitrose Supersweet Pineapple, skinned, cored and cubed to give 200g flesh
250g pack Spelt, Quinoa, Red Rice & Wild Rice                              1 tbsp light soy sauce (optional)



1 Heat 2 tsp oil in a large wok or frying pan, then add the beans and cook over a high heat for 5 minutes, to defrost. Add the onion and pepper and fry for 3-5 minutes more, until the vegetables start to soften. Tip onto a plate.
