    2 Chicken breasts (ff)
    2 Garlic Cloves (sff)
    2 Sweet peppers, finely sliced (s) (sff)
    2 Chillies, deseeded & finely chopped (s) (sff)
    2tbsp white wine vinegar
    90g low fat cheddar cheese, grated (2xHea/2=1 Hea per person)
    125mL passata (s) (sff)
    300ml stock using a Knorr “chicken” stockpot
    Shake of Salt

    Method

    In a food processor chop the onion, chillies & garlic to a puree.
    Cook the chicken in a frying pan sprayed with Fry Light, cook until browned then removed from the pan and set aside.
    In the pan cook the passata, peppers, the puree & stock, season with sweet chilli sauce, white wine vinegar, salt & cayenne pepper, then bring to the boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, return the chicken to the pan, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.
    Move the chicken to a plate and add the cheese, cover for 5 mins, allowing the cheese to melt.
    In the meantime, increase the heat and reduce the sauce to half the volume.
    Plate up, serve with vegetables & cover with the sauce.

    I've had a few of the Coleman's season and shake packets. The flavours I've had (BBQ, rustic, lemon and herb, Mediterranean) range from 3-5 syns for the pack but you can half that if cooking for 2 as I do. They are delicious and the chicken is so tender and tasty. Highly recommended!

    I have just had chicken pilaf,
    Boil some rice
    While cooking fry off some chicken it says thighs but breasts would work just chop them into bite size pieces and onion for about 6 minutes
    Add tablespoon of curry powder and half teaspoon cinnamon
    Add 400g of frozen mixed veg
    Cook for 4 minutes
    Then add rice and heat for two minutes.
    From the new ee express book, was delicious and quick
