Tom Yum Diet Chicken

So here's a really easy chicken recipe from my dinner  tonight. Its zero oil, and cooks in 5 minutes in the microwave. 

Preparing time 5 minutes. Cooking time 5 minutes. Serves one.

Ingredients
1. 100 grams boneless chicken breast diced
2. 1 onion, chopped
3. 1 tomato, chopped
4. 1 bell pepper, remove the seeds and chop
5. 4 button mushrooms, chopped
6. 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
7. 1 tablespoon Tom Yum paste
8. 1 tablespoon coconut cream
9. 2 tablespoons of passata
10. Coriander with stem, pulled apart and torn. (Now take in that beautiful smell!)



1. In a microwavable bowl add the diced chicken. Microwave for 1 minute.
2. Remove, stir and add all the vegetables. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir.
3. Add the ginger garlic paste, Tom Yum paste, Coconut cream and passata. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir.
4. Garnish with coriander.

Notes
- You can add any brand ginger garlic paste.
- Tom Yum paste is a really delicious Thai paste that you can buy at any Asian grocery store and they're even available at Walmart (for the American's), Tesco's (for you Brits) and well in Asia kinda just everywhere.
- Kara coconut cream is easily available in Singapore (think Mustafa!) but you can use any coconut milk/cream/powder.
- I only add the Passata (that I got from Waitrose but for all of you non England residents any passata will do) to give a bit of gravy incase you want to eat this with rice. Even no passata will do!

Enjoy!

    1. Awww, Obrigado por sua bela mensagem!
      Hahaha! Sim, Traduz Google salvou minha vida em se comunicar com pessoas de todo o mundo.
      Creme de coco é facilmente disponível facilmente em qualquer lugar na Ásia. É um ingrediente-chave em um monte de culinária asiática. Mas aqui é um blog que eu espero que ajude!
