Today I’m going to share with you how to cook at home some Chinese food but healthy way!
It’s super duper delicious healthy dinner ideas that you need to try out at your home! Chinese takeout foods are delicious but they are not the best for your body. It always make my tummy upset after I eat those delicious sesame chicken, fried rice and egg rolls. So one day I decided to make the same flavor but much more healthier way
Pan-fry instead deep-fry, minimum sugar, much less grease and of course much less calories!! I started cooking wild rice on the stove by following the direction of the package I was using. It takes about 20 mins to cook it, so mean while I cooked chicken and kale.
I used chicken thighs because Jacob and I prefer this juicy meat, but you can definitely use chicken breast. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and heat a large skillet over medium high. Add 1/2 Tbs. coconut oil and add chicken. Cook 4 minutes each side or it cooked 3/4 through and golden brown.
Meanwhile mix 2 Tbs. any type of fruit preserves you have in your hand (such as mango, orange, peach, pineapple, apple, yuzu, quince, rasberry and etc..) and 1/4 cup of chicken stock. I used quince because that’s what I had. I think if you use orange marmalade, it will taste like orange chicken, which is AWESOME!
Pour the fruit preserve and chicken stock mixture over chicken and simmer until it thickens, about 3 to 4 minutes. Keep move and flip over the chicken so it will evenly glazed. Add juice from 1/2 of juicy fresh lime. If it’s not juicy you might need to add whole 1 lime.
For the kale- Heat another large skillet over medium high heat and add 1/2 Tbs. coconut oil. Add 1 garlic clove, chopped and pinch of red pepper flakes. Add 4 cups chopped curly kale, pinch of salt and pepper for taste. Saute for about 3 to 5 minutes and finish up with a few drops of lime juice and you are done! So so easy, you don’t have to go to the WholeFoods for this anymore!
By the time when you finished chicken and kale, your rice is probably done, too. Now, all you need to do is serve on a plate and eat!! 🙂
It didn’t give me a tummy trouble after all and most of all, we enjoyed it so much!! It was So So delicious!!!
I hope you guys try out at your home one day!
