Chicken with Cashews and Noodles 2

Chicken and Cashews with Noodles


This one was even more yummy than the first and was the first time I've used Pak Choy (Bok Choy),  listed as 'Moderate' in Salicylates.  I used the same sauce of golden syrup, water and corn flour, but tinkered as I went to get it right.  In the end, there was too much sauce,  but never mind.  Obviously,  in a stir fry,  you put in whatever you have in your fridge or is in season.  Any combination of this and the first noodle recipe would be just lovely. 

This time I have used 3 vegetables listed as 'Moderate' in the RPAH Elimination Diet handbook,  but I decided it was worth the risk.  Let's face it,  Ms C is going to eat the chicken, the noodles and the cashews and avoid the vegie stuff anyway.  So,  minimum risk really.

Ingredients:

  • 500g chicken breast
  • 1/2 Leek
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 medium Carrots*, cut into teeny matchsticks
  • 2-3 sticks Celery, finely sliced
  • 4-5 Asparagus* stalks, sliced
  • 1 Pak Choy* plant, leaves chopped once and stalked chopped 3 times
  • 100-125g raw Cashews
Sauce:
  • 1 tab corn flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tabs golden syrup
  • Salt

Method:

  • Prepare sauce by combining all ingredients, mixing well and set aside
  • Chop garlic and leek in TMX on about Speed 7 for about 4 seconds
  • Scrape down, add a little oil and saute for 2 minutes on 100degC, Reverse Speed Soft
  • Add diced chicken and cooked on 100degC, Reverse Speed Slow for about 5 minutes
  • Remove chicken mix from TMX
  • Add carrot, celery, asparagus and pak choy stalks
  • Cook for 10 minutes, 100 degC on Reverse Speed Soft, scraping down bowl occasionally
  • Add chicken, cashews and sauce and cook further 5-10 minutes 100 degC Reverse Speed soft until sauce thickens and it is well combined.  Use spatula to help it along.
  • Add Pak Choy leaves and again use spatula to really mix it in, cooking a further 3-5 minutes.
  • Serve on Rice Noodles

*Moderate Salicylates

More vegies to try:
  • Choko,  sliced finely
  • Spring onion
  • Butternut Pumpkin, in matchsticks
  • Bamboo Shoots

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.



Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
