GLUTEN FREE- Loaded With Proteins and FIBRE -QUICK TO MAKE

COOKING TIME: 10-15 Minutes


2 Chicken breast fillet
100 grams Baby Spinach leaves
12 Pecan or walnuts halves
6 dried apricot or dates cut into half
50 grams grated cheddar or mozzarella cheese
1 fresh green chilli or 1 inch of frozen crushed green chilli
1 inch of frozen or fresh grated ginger
1 inch of frozen or fresh crushed garlic
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon all spice powder
12 Bamboo picks
Cut Chicken breast into thin layers and make long stripes
STEP 1. Mix ginger, garlic, salt and all spice and make a paste.
STEP 2. Place chicken stripes on a cutting board and rub the garlic ginger paste,. Now you need to place rest of the ingredients to cover the surface of each stripe and roll the chicken stripe.  (Suggestion- start with placing spinach leaves, then grated cheese, one half of pecan/walnut and then one half of dried apricot/date on top end of the stripe).
STEP 3. Stick in a bamboo pick/toothpick making sure you take the nut/date into the pick and place all chicken picks on a baking tray or on the grill on barbecue.
STEP 4. Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees C and broil for 2 minutes at 550 degrees to give it the golden colour. If using barbecue, grill on high heat for 5-10 minutes.
Serve it with one of the delicious and healthy Yogurt dips
