When I am on a diet sometimes I like to get creative to satisfy my taste buds while helping me stick to said diet. Here’s a recipe for a simple, easy meal that’s pretty much guilt free. I made it up. It was tasty.
Spicy Napa Chicken with Pea Sprouts
- 1 Box of Pea Sprouts – I found this at H-Mart and it’s sold at most international grocery stores
- 4 Sweet Red Peppers
- 2-4 Napa Cabbage Leaves
- Rooster Sauce to your preference
- 1 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thigh ( Breast can be substituted)
- A pinch each of ground black pepper, ground red pepper, ground sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.
This is really easy. My mother tells me I don’t cook, I assemble. She’s right mostly. I’m not a big fan of slaving over a stove. This recipe is delicious and required only my george foreman grill.
Rub the chicken thigh with all the spices combined. Toss that sucker on to the Foreman and let it grill up. In the meantime, wash your pea shoots, and cut up your red peppers. Put them in a bowl together.
Rip off two to four leaves from your Napa cabbage & wash them. Your chicken should be pretty much done almost. Mine took like 6 minutes. Cut or dice the chicken into small pieces. Throw it together with the pea shoot mix. Now put a sizeable amount of that mix onto each cabbage leaf and then spray like cray with the rooster sauce.
Oh my god it is delicious. The pea sprouts lend this surprisingly good slightly nutty taste to the whole thing.
And healthy. :)
I’m going to go eat the rest of it now. :)
