Ingredients

Reduced Sugar Marmalade

100 g

Freshly squeezed orange juice

8 tablespoons, level

Lime Juice, Fresh

4 tablespoons

Soy Sauce

3 tablespoons

Flying Goose Brand Sriracha Hot Chilli Sauce

22 ml

Root Ginger

1 tablespoons, grated

Chicken breast, skinless, raw

4 medium

Orange(s)

1 medium, thinly sliced

Broccoli, raw

600 g, prepared broccoli 'rice'

Chickpeas, cooked

1 can(s), large, drained

Sesame Seeds

1 teaspoons

Mint, Fresh

2 tablespoons

Instructions

  1. Make the marinade: in a bowl, combine the marmalade, orange juice, 2 tbsp lime juice, soy sauce, Sriracha and ginger. Season, then put the chicken in a plastic food bag, pour in the marinade, then seal. Marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours, or preferably overnight.
  2. Heat a large nonstick griddle pan over a medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the food bag (reserving the marinade) and griddle for 20 minutes, turning once, until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into thick slices. Griddle the orange slices, in batches, for 1-2 minutes on each side, then remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. While the chicken is resting, pour the reserved marinade into a small pan and bring to a boil over a medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, until thickened and reduced.
  4. Cook the broccoli ‘rice’ to pack instructions, then transfer to a bowl with the chickpeas. Add the remaining lime juice and stir to combine, then season to taste.
  5. Divide the broccoli ‘rice’ between plates and top with the griddled chicken and orange slices. Drizzle over the sauce, then serve garnished with the sesame seeds and mint.

Notes

Try this recipe with 400g peeled and deveined raw king prawns instead of the chicken. Marinate the prawns for 30 minutes, then griddle for 1-2 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Then, continue as directed. Remember to adjust the SmartPoints if you are on Green.
