Nana Martin’s scrumptious family dinner

Nana Martin made this last night and we all had seconds.  It is healthy, scrumptious and best of all can be adapted according to whether you want chicken, vegetarian quorn chunks, tuna or prawns as the main ingredient.  The sweet chilli sauce is more sweet than spicy so fine for kids, and you could vary the vegetables that you use.  Serve this together with some pasta, rice or a jacket potato.  Serves 3-4.


Main ingredient: 3 chicken breasts, chopped; OR small pack of vegetarian quorn chunks: OR 2 tuna fillets, chopped or 2 cans tuna; OR pack of frozen or fresh prawns

1 clove garlic, chopped/crushed

120g mushrooms, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

Small tub creme fraiche

1 tbsp tomato puree

1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

Fry the chicken, veg quorn chunks, tuna or prawns in a little oil until golden/cooked.  Seperately fry the garlic, mushrooms, onion and pepper for approx 10 minutes, until cooked and tender.  Add the main ingredient, creme fraiche, tomato puree and sweet chilli sauce and stir and cook for a few more minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve with pasta, rice or jacket potatoes.
