I’ve been off down memory lane again. This time, sweet and sour chicken gets the healthy treatment. What retro favourite would you revive for diet days?

Ingredients

  • 75 g (2.6oz) basmati rice

  • 2 x 150g (5oz) skinless and boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes

  • 1 small onion (or 1 cup frozen), peeled and chopped

  • 1 red (bell) pepper (or half cup mixed), deseeded and chopped

  • 120 g (4.2oz) broccoli florets

  • 1 tsp garlic paste (or 1 clove, crushed)

  • 2 tsp cornflour

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar

  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • half a tsp English mustard

  • 4 tbsp water

  • 1 tbsp rice wine (or sherry)

Directions

  • Cook the rice by your favourite method.
  • Place the chicken, onion, pepper, broccoli and garlic in a bowl. Sprinkle over the cornflour and season with salt and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.
  • Heat the oil in a wide pan over a medium heat. Toss in the chicken and vegetable mixture and cook, stirring every minute, until just cooked (about 8-10 minutes, depending on size).
  • Meanwhile mix the honey, vinegar, tomato purée, soy sauce, English mustard, water & sherry in a small bowl. When the chicken is just cooked, stir in the sauce and allow to bubble gently for 2 minutes.
