Simple Chicken and Buckwheat Recipe

Chicken and Buckwheat

This is not a Jamie Oliver style recipe with superfluous ingredients, the focus here is on good nutrition rather than incredible flavour. Chicken is a bodybuilding staple and the carbohydrate sources are interchangeable in most cases. The main health benefits of each ingredient are listed beside them. This is suitable as a lunch or a dinner, and can also be prepped in the morning and taken to work in Tupperware. Around 50-60 grams of Buckwheat might be suitable for a petite frame, while 100g+ for those who need big portions.

  • 1 Piece Organic Chicken Breast: High in protein, lean meat.
  • 80g Buckwheat: Lowers Cholesterol, High in Fibre, Complex Carbohydrate, Source of Magnesium.
  • 2 Tomatoes: Has anti-cancer properties and is a good source of Vitamins A, B and C.
  1. Put organic chicken breast in a pan of hot water, on a low heat (steam, no visible bubbles)
  2. Wait 10 minutes
  3. Weigh out your Buckwheat and place it in a pan of boiling water
  4. Take two tomatoes and cut them into 8-16 pieces
  5. Heat a frying pan with oil (Groundnut or Coconut Oil are good choices)
  6. When the chicken has been on for around 18 minutes, place the chopped tomatoes in the frying pan
  7. Add seasoning of your choice, I used Smoked Paprika, Pepper and Hot Chili Powder
  8. The chicken should be ready after 20 minutes. Remove, drain the water, place on a chopping board and cut into pieces
  9. Add diced chicken to the frying pan and stir. If the chicken is cooked this is a quick stir just to coat the chicken in seasoning
  10. Drain the buckwheat and serve alongside chicken and tomatoes

As with the other “recipes” it’s just cooking three ingredients. This is a nice and healthy meal and takes 25 minutes.

As a complete protein, you can make buckwheat a staple meal, and mix it up with different vegetables to add variety.
