Portuguese chicken

Pan fried Portuguese chicken, microwave chips

Dinner for one. Using up ingredients in freezer & fridge before starting new eating plan and grocery day. This Portuguese marinade was very spicy hot as it was leftover from a previous meal a couple of months back (Chili gets hotter in cold fridge)but expiry date hadn’t come yet. So it was still good to use.

 

 

 

 

Serves 1

I marinated chicken in Portuguese sauce overnight then pan fried it in olive oil. Cut into chunks and serve in rice bowl

I put frozen straight cut chips in microwave bowl and cooked in microwave for 2min 30 seconds

 

Make side salad of mixed leaves, cherry tomatoes and cucumber with lemon squeezed over top.
