A nice quick light meal that is high on taste and low on prep, we all need a few of these to help to keep us on the diet track. It is another good standby if you are short on time, but need a proper meal to stop any snacking and picking later.
Ingredients: Serves two
1tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
½ tablespoon paprika
2 x 100 g free-range boneless skinless chicken breasts
Mix the half the oil and paprika to a paste and rub all over the chicken breasts, leave for 10 minutes to allow the paprika to infuse the chicken. Cook on a lightly oiled frying pan or griddle for 10–12 minutes until the chicken is becoming slightly charred and is cooked through when tested, when the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
Halfway through cooking the chicken, add the asparagus to the griddle or frying pan allow them to be covered with the paprika, then cook until the asparagus tender, about 5 minutes. Terrific with sugar-snap peas, baby corn and a sweet potato mash
