Zingy chicken and peanut stir-fry recipe

Another fantastic Far East-influenced post-workout meal is JC’s chicken satay stir-fry. It’s packed full of high-quality protein, low-GI carbs and vitamins C, K and B – all important for maintaining vital brain, blood, bone and immune system health. If this stir-fry is a bit of you but you haven’t trained that day, simply remove the noodle carb source.

Ingredients: (serves 1)

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ red chilli
  • 1cm piece fresh ginger

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
