    Thai chicken & grains with pineapple

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes

    Serves: 2 - 3


    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.

    2 Add the remaining oil to the pan, then fry the chicken for 3 minutes, stirring continuously, until browned on the outside. Add 2 tbsp cold water, then cover the pan and simmer for 5-7 minutes until the meat is cooked through.

    3 Stir in the pineapple and the grains, then return the vegetables to the pan. Stir-fry until piping hot. Splash in the soy sauce (if using), toss well, then serve.
