Greek Chicken Power Bowl

Greek Chicken Power Bowl

This recipe comes from my soul.....HAHA! My greek-ness is shining through on this - and its probably my FAVOURITE thing to have for a quick lunch! The tzatziki just makes it so click the link below to get my favourite tzatziki recipe!  Serves: 2Prep Time: 10 minutesCook time: 20 minutes  Ingredients: 1 large chicken breast1 garlic clove, crushed 1/2 tsp dried oregano1/2 tsp paprika Salt and pepper, to taste1/2 cup cous cous, uncooked 1 tbsp butter1 cucumber, halved and sliced 1 small red onion, sliced 1/2 cup kalamata olives 5-8 cherry tomatoes, halved 4 tbsp tzatziki Directions:  Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F. In a mixing bowl, coat the chicken in garlic, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper.   On a non stick frying pan, splash a little olive oil and heat to a medium high heat. Place chicken onto the frypan and lightly brown on all sides.  Place chicken onto a lined baking tray and into the oven for 15 minutes or until completely cooked through. (this way, it won't overcook and dry out on the pan!) Once cooked, slice into strips.  Cook cous cous according to packet instructions. When adding the water to cous cous, add the dollop of butter and mix through. This will help the cous cous from sticking.  Into a bowl, add the cucumber, red onion, olives, cherry tomatoes and cooked cous cous. Top with the sliced chicken.  Either keep the tzatziki on the side, or mix it through (my favourite!) EAT!

Sweet Potato Nachos

Sweet Potato Nachos

 I LOVE Aussie sweet potatoes because;   - They are high in Vitamins & packed with fibre (great for a healthy digestive system)  - SUCH a versatile veggie (can be in almost anything as a #superswap - hello sweet potato ice-cream haha!) - They are sweet, so the addition of flavour brings out the deliciousness in any dish!  - Gives that fullness to any meal, eg a mash with steak and veggies would keep you fuller for longer!  Serves 2prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 30 minutes Ingredients:1-2 medium Australian sweet potatoes Bean mixture:1 tsp olive oil1 small garlic clove, crushed400g can red kidney beans, drained & rinsed2 tbsp tomato passata sauce Pinch of cayenne pepper Salt and pepper to taste Guacamole½ avocadoLemon juice, to taste¼ garlic clove, crushedSalt & pepper to taste Salsa½ medium tomato, diced (room temp)¼ small red onion, finely dicedLemon juice to taste1 tsp olive oil1 tbsp. coriander, choppedPinch of salt and pepper Directions: Pre heat oven to 180 degrees celisus. To make the sweet potato chips, slice the sweet potato in rounds as thin as you can. To make it easier, use a mandolin slicer so they come out even. Spray the rounds with olive oil and season with salt. Lay flat on a couple of lined baking trays (it might look like a lot of sweet potato, but it shrinks!) and place into the oven for 30 minutes. After the first 15, remove and flip. Keep an eye on them as they can burn easily. Remove from oven once crunchy. To make the bean mixture, heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat.Add garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds, add the beans, tomato passata, salt and pepper and stir. Heat through for a couple of minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken. Set aside until you’re ready to assemble. To make the salsa, place tomato, red onion, lemon juice, olive oil, coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper into a small mixing bowl. Keep this out of the fridge as you want it to be room temperature. To begin making the guacamole, place the avocado, lemon and garlic into a small bowl and mash. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste. Finally – you’re ready to assemble! Arrange the sweet potato chips onto a place and top with beans, salsa and avocado. This is meant to be had fresh, so no need to go back into the oven! EAT!
