I got this recipe from the Weight Watchers ‘One Pot Meals’ cookbook. It’s dead easy to make. I suppose it’s quite high in points but it is a good filling meal so you wouldn’t be eating for a while afterwards and it would probably stop you from snacking so it’s worth it.
300g jar salsa
200ml chicken stock
300g butternut squash peeled, de-seeded and cut into chunks
1 red pepper, de-seeded and cut into chunks
75g dried basmati rice
15g chopped fresh coriander
300g skinless bonesless chicken beast, cut into chunks
410g can red kidney beans in water, drained and rinsed
1. Tip half of the jar of salsa into a lidded pan then pour in the stock. Add the squash and pepper, and then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Add the rice, half the coriander and the chicken then cover the pan and cook gently for about 8 minutes until the rice is tender and the chicken is cooked through.
3. Stir in the beans. Cover and leave for a few minutes to settle. Serve with the remaining salsa and scatter with the rest of the coriander.
