Lj's Skinny Chicken Stir fry with Slim Noodles

Serves 2


150 grams Chicken Breast 
1 Tablespoon of Balsamic Vinegar
1 Table Spoon of ABC Soy Sauce
1 Clove of fresh Garlic finely diced
4 Button Mushrooms 
1 Medium Carrot 
1/2 Small Zucchini 
2 Yellow button Squash
1/4 Leek 
1/4 Red Capsicum 
1 Packet of Slim Noodles (250 grams)

What to do:

Slice the Chicken and add to bowl, add the Balsamic Vinegar, Soy Sauce and garlic.
Leave in the fridge to marinate for a few hours if possible. Slice all the veges and Saute in a preheated non stick pan with a splash of Olive Oil. Be your own chef here and cook the veggies the way you like them. I prefer them with a little bit of crunch. Remove from the pan and brown the Chicken. Add the veggies back into the pan and stir to combine. Rinse and soak the noodles in hot water for 2 mins, drain and add to the pan. Stir to combine. If you are like me and like it a little saucier add some more soy sauce :-)


PS You can use whatever veggies you like, I just used what I already had in the fridge

Lj's Mango & Banana Chutney

So many fresh Mango's off my tree this year! 
Whipped up this Chutney for myself and to share with some friends!


6 fresh mangoes medium sized - skin and seed removed and cubed
2 Bananas sliced
1 cup of Raisins
1 large white onion diced 
3 cups of vinegar ( I usually use apple cider but ran out and used white today)
2 cups of sugar 
1 teas curry powder
1 teas chilli powder
1 teas cinnamon
1 teas yellow mustard seeds
3/4 cup sweet sherry ( you could use port)

What to do:

I've used an electric pot I have that is like an electric frypan but a pot. I add the vinegar and sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar a bit. Add everything else and bring to the boil, then let it simmer until thickened, took approx 4 hours but I cooked it slow. Bottle in sterilised jars while hot.
