Coconut Chilli Chicken and Greens

This weekend I side-stepped the temptation to order in a takeout by whipping up this one pan speedy supper. Admittedly it still requires washing up the one pan but at least it doesn't result in the ingestion of unwanted MSG and other nasties which inevitably lead to a whole host of unpleasant gut and health issues.

large handful of spring greens, washed, dried and sliced

1. Heat coconut oil in a wok or skillet over medium to high heat.
2. Fry the chicken until lightly browned all over.
3. Add the spring onions, ginger and chili to the pan and stir fry for a couple of minutes to release the aromas and soften the onions.

5. Pour in the coconut cream, turn down the heat slightly to medium and sautee for approximately 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are al dente (or cooked to your preference).
