‘Salty-sweet-sour’ chicken with soy, vinegar & preserved turnip

Posted on Updated on

I bought a pack of preserved turnip from an Asian grocery store over the weekend, and decided to use this to create a salty-sweet-sour dish. It is really simple –  300g chicken sliced chicken fillet marinated with a sauce consists of a dash of soy sauce, a dash of balsamic vinegar, 1 tbs of sugar, 1 tsp of potato starch mixed well with 1 tbs of water and 1 tbs wine.

The cooking method is also super simple – heat up a frying pan with some cooking oil, first add a few pieces of thinly sliced ginger, then 2 tbs of diced salted turnip, quickly stir fry for 20 seconds, and add the marinated chicken, stir fry until cooked on medium heat – you may prefer to close the lid for a few minutes which will keep the chicken juicy.  Served on a bed of rice and salad or steamed vegetables.  Really hearty and flavorsome.

On most Fridays I work from home. Some days there seems to be so much happening that I barely have time to make lunch. This is one of my Friday 10 minute meal – it is delicious and recharges me on cold winter days. No recipe required.

Chicken soup with ginger bok choy (FODMAP friendly, gluten free)

I boil some water in the kettle while I thinly slice 2 chicken tight fillets, wash & slice some bok choy,  and slice up some ginger; Then I  heat up a little cooking oil in a pot, pan fry the ginger slightly, then fill the pot up with 2 cups of water and the chicken pieces; bring the water to boil, add the bok choy, bring it to boil again; check if the chicken is cooked through; and lunch is served with a pinch of salt and pepper.  If you like, you can add a dash of oyster sauce.

So simple and heart warming – the ginger brings out so much flavor.

Serves 2.

A friend has recently moved to a low FODMAP diet. When we have dinner parties, I try to accommodate his diet with the simplest, freshest ingredients with low FODMAP. It is fun and challenging working with limited ingredients.

Here is a super easy recipe & well balanced – the pan fried capsicums & pumpkins add lots of sweetness to this dish, lettuce add  crunchiness, quinoa adds texture, chicken for protein.
