Name: Jessica, aka "Enu-P"
Bio: Jessica Bongos-Ikwue (born July 15th 1983 from Otukpo, Benue State) attained her BA in International development from the University of Liverpool and her MSc in Leisure events and facilities management from Sheffield Hallam University. Even with these degrees and work experience in NGOs and events management, Jessica still found herself constantly creating recipes and cooking up a storm. Jessica is currently a professional caterer in Abuja and has learnt (mostly from the “African health” blog) that healthy cooking is definitely the way forward. With a passion for food and cooking, and great love and respect for Ify Aniebo (the creator of this fantastic website), Jessica jumped on this opportunity to provide exciting and healthy recipes for the website.
Posts by Enu-P:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 12 boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins cut into 1-inch pieces (marinated in pepper, salt, garlic and any other spice of your choice)
- 1 bag frozen stir fry vegetable mix (cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, green beans, etc)
- 1 chili pepper/atarodo
- 1 small onion
- 1 large green pepper finely chopped
- 1 large red pepper finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 cup of rice (brown rice or cous cous to be extremely healthy)
- Heat oil in large wok. Add onions, then add seasoned chicken; cook over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Add chili, red and green peppers and vegetables, then add soy sauce and honey.
- Cover and cook 5 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in centre and vegetables are crisp-tender.
Need a quick fix? Then try this recipe. It’s so simple and straightforward, and healthy too :0)
Meanwhile, cook rice or cous cous. Serve stir-fry over rice
Note; you can use fresh veggies instead of frozen veggies. We used frozen veggies in this recipe because it’s supposed to be a quick fix and it’s easier to throw in a bag of frozen veggies into the mix. If you have the time to chop up fresh veggies, then I would highly recommend that.
