As I may have mentioned once or twice before, I love a one pot dinner. This isn’t exactly that as you will need to cook some rice to go with, but I can do that in the microwave so that is easy enough. I came up with this idea as I was looking for something to deal with the “not chicken again” cry that tends to go up in my house – I like chicken but need to find new flavours to stave off the boredom. I had a rummage in the fridge to see what I had, and came up with this – and it smelt amazing when it was cooking, and tasted good too!
1 tbsp oil (I like olive oil with chicken);
500g chicken breasts, chopped;
1/2 cos lettuce, sliced from the top down into ribbons;
3 sticks celery, finely sliced;
1 spring onion, finely sliced;
3/4 of a small jar of corn relish (check the label but these should be gluten free);
1/2 cup cream;
2 cups frozen corn kernels (you could use tinned so long as you drained them well).
Preheat a large, heavy based pan on medium high, add the oil and brown the chicken. Add the green vegetables and stir to mix. Stir through the corn relish and cream, turn down to a simmer. Add the corn kernels and simmer for about 10 minutes more.
Serve with rice.
