Recipe: Quorn Chicken Laksa

Now… I like chicken…a LOT. But it does prove to get quite expensive when I’m eating it for two meals every single day. So, mother dear likes to get some Quorn in for backup. Fair play – it’s still a good protein source and if you add enough seasoning, it tastes just as good.

I wanted to have a look online to find some interesting recipes, and this one took my fancy, so I thought I’d give it a go for dinner. And it was absolutely incredible!! Low in calories, low in fat – it’s a great little dinner to whip up in no time at all. Totally full of flavour, and just as good with Quorn as it would be with normal chicken breast chunks (as Matt proved by making it too).
