An impressive yet easy mid week meal of sticky sweet and chilli chicken, vegetables and avocado mayonnaise


  • Sticky Chicken & Veg:
  • 2 chicken breasts, diced
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder (or more depending on taste)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp chilli sauce
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 handful of lettuce
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • cashew nuts and chilli flakes to decorate
  • Avocado Mayo:
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Firstly make the Avocado Mayo by blending all the ingredient except the olive oil in a food processor until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil to the avocado mixture by drizzling it while the food processor is still running. Spoon it into a container or jar and put to one side.
  2. Mix the diced chicken, chilli powder, honey and chilli sauce together in a bowl. Transfer the chicken pieces to a frying pan and cook on a medium heat for 7-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Without cleaning the pan, add the tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms. Stir the vegetables around in any remaining sauce in the pan and fry gently for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Divide the spinach between two bowls before adding the lettuce and cooked tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms. Add the chopped avocado and sticky chicken. Finally, top with a spoonful of avocado mayo and decorate with cashew nuts and chilli flakes.
