4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
Low-calorie cooking spray
2 onions, thickly sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks
300g long-stem broccoli, halved if large
8 spring onions, finely chopped
500ml boiling chicken stock
1 level tsp cornflour, mixed with 2 tsp cold water
½ tsp turmeric
2 star anise
2 tsp mild curry powder
Season the chicken all over and set aside
Spray a large non-stick wok or frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the onions, garlic, ginger, chilli, carrots, broccoli, spring onions and chicken and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add the stock, cornflour mixture, turmeric, star anise and curry powder and bring to the boil. Cover, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened nicely. Serve hot.
Tip: This is great with rice although it won’t be suitable for Extra Easy SP if you have it that way.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
