Healthy Chicken Jambalaya

Eating healthy doesn't mean having to eat bland food.  Healthy food can taste great, it can be easy to prepare and cook in bulk. If you cook in bulk you'll have plenty of healthy meals to keep you going so you'll have less temptation to eat unhealthy.  If you eat unhealthy consistently you'll never reach your goals.  

 

 

Ingredients

1 tablespoon of macadamia nut oil

3-4 skinless chicken breasts

2 onions, chopped

1-2 red peppers

2-3 garlic cloves, crushed

1-2 tablespoons of cajun seasoning

350g brown rice

2 tins of chopped tomatoes

500ml of chicken stock

 

How To - 

- Heat the oil in a large pan/pot and then add the chicken until the chicken is brown.  Remove the chicken and set aside in a bowl.  Add the onion to the pan/pot and cook until the onion is soft.  Then add the peppers, garlic and cajun seasoning and cook for 5 minutes.  

- Add the chicken back in to the pan/pot with the brown rice and then add the tomatoes and chicken stock.  Cover and then simmer for approximately 40 minutes.

*To make this even more healthy you can add in peas, carrots, spinach etc. to really up the healthy points!  

*Macadamia nut oil is an awesomely heathy oil that is perfect for cooking with as it has all the  omegas, 3,6,7 and 9, no cholesterol, and all that goodness isn't ruined with cooking due to macadamia oils high smoke point (which means the goodness doesn't dissapear when heated).  I buy my oil from the lovely people at www.ennoblement.co.uk, check them out! 

And there you have an awesome healthy meal and plenty more to store away in your fridge or freezer so as not to be constantly cooking!
