Chicken, Broccoli and Cashew Stir fry Healthy Low Carb Fakeaway

Chicken, Broccoli and Cashew Stirfry – I have been hungry all day, so dinner needs to be a good one.


It’s a healthier Low Carb version of the favourite Chicken and Broccoli


I start with th dressing. 4 tablespoons of dark Soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of peanut butter, a good squeeze of Honey, a thumb size piece of grated ginger and a tablespoon of water to loosen the mix – stir thoroughly and set aside.


I defrosted 4 chicken breast in the fridge overnight, these are cut into bite sized pieces.


chop 2 fat cloves of garlic.


Finely slice a red bell pepper and a yellow pepper, A bunch of Spring Onions. Break up a head of Broccoli into small florets and slice the stalk.


In a tablespoon of Veg oil, cook the chicken over a medium heat, add the garlic


add the onions, peppers


and the Broccoli.


Toss together and cook for a few minutes then add the cashews and the dressing


Stir through, season to taste


Serve…. Fakeaway in less time than it would take to order a takeaway 😊

Over noodles for the men

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
