Fat free 3in1

Heya, I love a 3in1 from the Chinese but as I’m following a fitness plan, I won’t be visiting the Chinese any time soon! I decided to make my own, which is just as good and is basically fat free. I started off by getting my ingredients ready:

  1. Boil in the bag basmati rice
  2. Unislim rustic cut chips
  3. Mayflower medium curry sauce mix

I started by boiling a bag of this rice for 10-12 minutes. I used this basmati rice as it has very low sugars and saturated fat. 0.1g to be exact. While this was cooking, I prepared the chips.

I used these unislim chips as they also have very low saturated fat content. I placed the chips into the airfryer and set it for 17 minutes. The next thing I did was to cook 2 eggs in a frying pan and then add in the cooked rice and mix it together.

I cooked the curry by adding 2 tablespoons of powder to a sauce pan and adding enough water until I was happy with the texture of it. This curry tastes even better than the Chinese curry, it has to be tried to be believed. It’s amazing! 😍 Let the curry simmer for a few minutes while placing the rice and chips onto a plate. When you are ready, pour the curry over the rice and chips together, and enjoy! 😍

Homemade spicebag

I love nothing more than a spicebag for dinner and what better way to enjoy one by making it myself at home. I had seen this spice bag seasoning mix for sale and I could not wait to try it out!

So firstly, I went to SuperValu to purchase a tub of spice bag seasoning powder for the flavouring.

The next thing that I got was a red and green pepper and also a banana shallot. I cut up half of each pepper along with half of the shallot and mixed together on a plate.

I cooked the peppers and shallot in a frying pan on low heat using a spray cooking oil. While that was cooking, I put a handful of chips into the air fryer for 16 minutes. You can make homemade chips for this or whatever type of chips that you prefer.

The next part was the chicken. Any type of chicken can be used for the spicebag so I decided to use birds eye chicken dippers for mine. I cooked 11 chicken dippers in my fan oven at 190 degrees for 15 minutes. When that was cooked, I took it out of the oven and cut the chicken into smaller pieces.

The reason I used this chicken is because it already had a batter on it, and to be honest, I just couldn’t be bothered making a batter and cutting the chicken breast myself!

I put the chicken and the chips all into the frying pan with the peppers and shallot and mixed it all up.

I sprinkled on the spice bag seasoning into the frying pan and mixed it up. Be careful not to use too much of the seasoning as it has a very strong taste if too much is used. I let it sit for a minute or 2 and then served it onto a plate covered in brown paper.

I used the brown paper just to make it look better because any time I get a spicebag from the Chinese, it comes served in a brown paper bag.

The spice bag seasoning mix is available in SuperValu stores throughout Ireland and it will last for ages.
