Staring at a lonely chicken breast last night I was wondering what to make considering that the fridge was virtually empty.
Anyway, one carrot, red pepper and a red onion plus some store cupboard items soon turns it into a hearty supper for two. It  helps if you have lettuce too.

Slice then finely chop one chicken breast unless you have a mincer in which case use that. Add to a mixing bowl and drizzle  with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with turmeric, paprika and a big grind of black pepper. Give everything a good mix then add  to a deep frying pan over low to medium heat to brown.

Finely chop the carrot, pepper and onion and add to a mixing bowl with finely chopped sun-dried* (if the tomatoes were in oil  then drizzle some over the chopped vegetables, if not then add more olive oil). Add a sprinkle of dried herbs, a handful of  raisins, a crushed dried chilli, finely sliced garlic clove or three and a sprinkle of dried ginger. Give everything a good  mix then add to the browned meat turning the heat up a notch.

Allow to cook for a short while then add a big shake of white wine vinegar – cook off a little before adding a big glug of  soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce.

Turn up the heat and shake the pan so that everything has mixed and mingled. You want the meat cooked through but the  vegetables still with a little crunch.

Add another grind of black pepper then serve with Iceberg lettuce leaves. Yummmmm.

* I wouldn’t bother with dried sun-dried tomatoes unless you have time to rehydrate them. Alternatively, you can add a teaspoon of tomato purée instead.
