I am practising clean eating during the weekdays which can be hard if you love spicy ramen like me and crave it every day, sigh. However, I love cooking, salads and experimenting with food so I did not give up easily. I wanted to do something different than the typical grilled chicken salad so tried a sweet Thai chilli version and it worked well. It is a super simple recipe, packed with flavour as well as texture and less than 500 healthy calories.

  • 1 Chicken fillet (chopped into chunks)
  • 1/2 a head of broccoli (or less, I like more cause I LOVE broccoli and it fills me up!
  • 1/2 of yellow or orange or red bell pepper chopped in strips (you can use green capsicum too if you want)
  • A handful of chopped iceberg lettuce
  • A few cloves of garlic
  • Soya Sauce
  • Curry Paste
  • Sweet Thai Chili Sauce
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Light mayonnaise
  • Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt to taste
  • Olive Pomace oil


Marinate chicken overnight with some soya sauce. I used 1 tbsp.

In a non-stick wok (a non-stick pot will do too) drizzle a little bit of Olive pomace oil. On medium heat add the garlic cloves and saute till very light brown and then add chicken chunks and cook for 5 minutes.

In a small bowl mix 1 tsp curry paste, 2 tablespoons sweet Thai chilli sauce and 1 tbsp soya sauce. Add to the chicken and mix. Add salt if you need to, I didn't because soya sauce already contains sodium.

Cook the chicken till it's tender on low to medium heat and then add chopped broccoli and bell peppers. Stir properly, add a splash of some more soya sauce if needed and after cooking for 5 minutes cover the top and reduce heat to low. Cook for 5 to ten minutes till broccoli and peppers are semi-cooked yet still sustain their crunch and you are done with the cooking bit.

In a bowl place the chopped iceberg lettuce and top with sweet Thai chilli chicken and veggies. Don't throw away the remaining liquid in the wok, it can be used as an additional salad dressing if needed. Drizzle some light mayo on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds, enjoy!

Hope you like this recipe as much as I did!
