Chicken Sesame Stirfry


I am constantly asked for QUICK after dinner work meals, you can throw together without thinking that of course are full of flavour and nourish your insides… easy right?!

YES, it is easy when you can create this bad boy. My little creation came about because I know the feeling all to well, when you finish work, or get home late and CBF making anything. You almost want to order uber eats and pass out on the couch, but I promise you, THIS is quicker and more nourishing that Uber eats.

With a few spices, a couple of staple veggies and some chicken you have yourself and jam packed wholesome dinner. I have your dinner inspo sorted and your hubby/kids etc will thank me!!

I call this my 20minute fridge to plate, and I am in the middle of creating a special series for all my boss babes! Aint nobody got time for slaving away in the kitchen erry night!! Stay tuned my lovelies…

Oh and did I mention that this delish dinner is Gluten-free, Lactose Free, Fructose Friendly, LOW Fodmap AND DAMN FREAKING TASTY!!!

So now we have this sorted, and our tummies are happy, we have a serious decision to make… what TV show we can chillout and watch… currently we are tossing up between The Batchelor and Australian Survivor… haha

So enjoy your quick and easy dinner! I would love to see your finished product, so send me a pic or tag @thewholesome.heart
