Let your pan heat up on a medium to low heat, add in your chopped onions, can you hear them sizzle? Just when your onions have picked on a beautiful golden-brown color, then add in the chicken breast cubes and mix until it changes color from pink to white.
While you play around with Clucky Cluckerson for it to turn white, get hold of another pot, add in water and bring it to boil, toss in your broc’n’rolls (broccoli) and let them boil until soft or you know you can steam them too.
Now it’s time for our favorite part, lets throw in some spices in your pan and get that chicken all saucy! Add pepper, salt, paprika, and turmeric, then swirl around that pan (not really). Mix it all well and watch that lovely red color pop out.
Let’s do some magic with Maggie Chicken Stock Cube and mix until it dissolves. Toss in those chopped tomatoes and mix until it turns into a slightly thick sauce.
How about some crunch to this recipe? Throw in that finely sliced capsicum, cherry tomatoes, and steamed/boiled broccoli florets. Plate it out and Voila! It’s spicy and yummy and good for your tummy.
Enjoy and light up your taste buds! Have it as it is or with rice of your choice because don’t we all just love carbs.
