Lime & chilli chicken with wilted greens

Serves 4 Prep 5 min Cook 10 min


  • Juice of 1 lime, plus extra wedges to serve
  • 4tbsp mirin or sherry
  • 1tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce
  • 1tsp finely chopped chilli
  • 400g skinless chicken mini breasts
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 300g bok choi, trimmed
  • 250g sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 300g green beans, trimmed and sliced
  • 500g basmati rice, steamed, to serve


  1. Combine the lime juice, mirin or sherry, soy sauce and chilli in a small bowl. Put the chicken in a shallow, non-metallic container and pour over half the marinade (reserving the remainder). Stir to coat, then set aside for 10 min.
  2. Put a large non-stick frying pan or griddle pan over a high heat and spray with a little oil. Drain the chicken of excess marinade (reserve this, too – but keep it separate from the unused marinade), then cook for 3 min on each side or until cooked through. Add the marinade drained from the chicken to the pan and bubble for 2 min.
  3. Meanwhile, steam the vegetables until tender-crisp. Divide the steamed rice among four bowls. Top with the chicken and the vegetables, then drizzle with a little of the marinade reserved in step 1. Serve with the lime wedges.
