Healthy Sticky Chinese Chicken Recipe

Healthy Sticky Chinese Chicken Recipe

Here’s another great recipe from Jenny Macrides; this time a healthy variation for a sticky Chinese chicken dish.

What’s handy about this one is she’s written it so you can get a fair few meals out of it, making it ideal for batch cooking (how many will depend on how large your protein portions are). I haven’t written the macros out for this one as it’s essentially just the chicken you need to worry about.

Ingredients: 

  • 6 chicken skinless thighs without the bone (depending on your fat intake, you can swap this for chicken breast)
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • Thumb-sized knob of grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees
  2. Mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, blueberries, five-spice powder, ginger and garlic
  3. Pour over the chicken and toss to coat
  4. Roast for 35 minutes

 

Such a simple, yet delicious recipe. Enjoy!
