  • Carrots x baby 10
  • Rapeseed Oil x 5 ml

Dressing:

  • Kikkoman soy sauce (15 ml)
  • Red Chilli Peppers, x 1 (3 g)
  • Lime juice x 2  lime yields
  • Fish Sauce x 10ml
  • Natural Brown Sugar x 0.5 teaspoon or 4g

Method:

  1. Marinate the chicken in soy sauce and garlic for 20 mins
  2. Cook the chicken in oil in a wok on a medium heat
  3. Remove the chicken from wok and cook the pineapple for 3 minutes. Remove and let it cool.
  4. Combine the dressing ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Add the salad ingredients, chicken and pineapple and toss
  5. Eat and enjoy!!

From my nutrition notes:

Chicken is a lean source of protein that can help stabilise blood sugar. Pineapple contains bromelain that stimulates digestion, as do rocket leaves. Using soy sauce brings a full flavour without adding stock or salt.
