All the ingredients used in this recipe are budget-friendly except the chicken breast which you might be able to buy for a lower price on a sale. Chicken breast recipes are not only delicious but also one of the healthier meats to prepare the chicken recipes. It is rich in protein and lower in fat content when compared to chicken thighs or drumsticks. How often does one come across healthy dinner ideas that are not only easy on the budget but also happen to be a huge crowd pleaser?
When cooking with chicken breast, it is important not to overcook it since there is a high chance of the meat losing its moisture resulting in a dry, chewy texture. The trick to cooking chicken breast perfectly for any recipe is to cook it on the lowest heat setting for ten minutes straight with a lid covered on top. This method will slow cook the chicken retaining all the juices and moisture without drying it or ruining the flavor. Resist the urge to open the lid and peek through for those ten minutes. After ten minutes, when you open the lid, notice how juicy and tender the chicken breast will taste. If you practice this method, cooking with chicken breast should be an easy job.
When buying ingredients like soy sauce, always make sure to read the food labels so that you can choose the sauce that is low in sodium content and preservative-free. Don't be shy to compare the labels if you have to. In the place of all purpose flour, a healthier option would be arrowroot or tapioca flour. For additional nutrition, add other veggies like cabbage or diced bell peppers cooked until crunchy. You can also garnish the chicken with green onions on top once it is done. If you wish to make it a bit spicy, you may want to add chili flakes in the recipe.
