Quorn Chicken Sesame Seed Stir Fry.

100g purple sprouting broccoli
2tsp coconut oil
1/2 garlic clove, chopped finely
1 medium sized onion, chopped
100g Quorn chicken pieces, defrosted
4 mushrooms, sliced
pinch of chilli powder
pinch of ginger powder
1tbsp lemon juice
1tbsn nut butter
2 tbsp sesame seeds
300g cooked Udon noodles
3tbsp soy sauce

Stir-fries are a regular dish for me, I make them often with mushrooms and cashews, sometimes buckwheat noodles, something Udon. I don't often cook with Quorn chicken but I really wanted to make a satay chicken style dish with sesame seeds. This was one of these recipes that I tried a few attempts before getting right, but the end result hit the spot.

Place the purple sprouting broccoli in boiling water and cook for 5-7mins, then drain and set aside.

In a wok, place the coconut oil, garlic and onion and fry off for a couple minutes until fragrant. Next add a tablespoon of water along with the Quorn chicken pieces, mushrooms, chilli, ginger and lemon juice. Fry for another minute or two before adding the nut butter and sesame seeds and stirring to coat evenly. Lastly add the Udon noodles, broccoli and soy sauce and stir well, frying for around 7-10 minutes until the Quorn chicken is slightly browned, if it dries out then add a little more water.
